Bail Set for Man Accused of Park Shooting

A justice court judge set bail for the man accused of shooting two women during a soccer game last month.

Bail for 19-year-old Ezra Peoples is set at $250,000. According to Metro Police, Peoples fired shots out of his bedroom window and hit the women, who were watching the game at Teton Trails Park January 19.

One woman was hit in the leg and the other's chest was grazed by a bullet.

Peoples was already in custody when he was charged in connection with the shooting.

He is one of three men charged in connection with a home invasion robbery, kidnapping and car theft.

According to police, the suspect and two other men forced their way into a home near Iron Mountain Road and Jones Boulevard just before 2 a.m. January 30, when one of the two residents was returning home.

The suspects woke the second resident and threatened both victims with handguns as they ransacked the house, police said. At least one of the suspects fired several shots at the victims before they left the home with valuables, keys and the victim's car.

The suspects were found the next day when North Las Vegas Police spotted the stolen car near the 215 beltway and Decatur Boulevard. When officers stopped the car, the three men fled. After an intense search two of the suspects were caught. The third victim was found Tuesday.

The other suspects in the robbery and kidnapping, 22-year-old Kyron Butler and 19-year-old Maurice Daniel Talley, along with Peoples are facing several charges including robbery with a deadly weapon, burglary, kidnapping, and auto theft.

Talley also faces charges of battery with a deadly weapon, attempted murder and discharging a firearm in a structure.

It was during the investigation into the robbery and kidnapping that police discovered Peoples was the suspect in the shooting of the two women.
