Kashif Brown, 24, was gunned down at a gas station at Valley View Boulevard and Alta Drive on March 22, 2021. Police called the attack random and held a news conference a few weeks after it happened to release surveillance video and urged anyone with information to contact them.

Brown, who has a large family, left behind a wife and three daughters. Family members say he was filling his gas tank up to go to work when the shooting happened.

What's Driving You Crazy? - Delayed flyover opening in the Centennial Bowl

LAS VEGAS ( KLAS ) - A ramp opening update and more from – where else? - the 95 and the northern 215 beltway. You got it: we're . . . "Centennial Bowling!"

The last freeway-to-freeway flyover bridge in the Centennial Bowl was tentatively scheduled to open next month. I just learned from Nevada Dept of Transportation spokesman Tony Illia that that's been pushed back to the end of the year.
