Woman Killed Over $5 Worth of Marijuana

A North Las Vegas high school junior will be prosecuted as an adult in the shooting death of a woman in what police say was a dispute over $5 in a marijuana buy.

An arrest report released Wednesday says the 16-year-old was arrested Sept. 11 after North Las Vegas and Clark County School District police questioned Mojave High School students about the Sept. 5 slaying.

The teen is accused of shooting 20-year-old Andrea Lafon in the head as she sat in a car in a North Las Vegas neighborhood. Lafon died the next day.

A witness told police that Lafon refused to let the teen pay $35 for $40 worth of marijuana.

The Associated Press doesn’t typically name juveniles accused of crimes and is withholding the teen’s name pending the filing of charges.
