Police find man shot dead inside home

LAS VEGAS - One person is dead after a shooting near Durango Drive and Blue Diamond Road.

The incident occurred on Lower Trailhead Avenue. Metro Police received a call shortly before 12:30 a.m. Thursday about shots fired at a home in the area. Neighbors also reported hearing someone banging on a door.

When officers arrived, they found the front door of the home was kicked in. They entered the home and discovered 22-year-old Marvin Surrell with fatal gunshot wounds in an upstairs hallway. Surrell lives with his mother, girlfriend, and 6-year-old step-daughter.

The other people were not home at the time of the shooting.

"I don't believe it was a random act. I mean everyone should have concerns, I don't believe this particular incident is a random act. It is more targeted to this specific person,” Metro Police homicide Sgt. Matthew Sanford said.

IKEA to open store in southwest Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS -- The popular Swedish furniture store, IKEA, is coming to the Las Vegas valley.

The company announced its plans at a news conference Monday. Company officials say the store will be located at Sunset  Road and Durango Drive and will open in the summer of 2016.

"We look forward to opening and making our first investment here in Las Vegas," said Joseph Roth with IKEA.

The retailer which is known for its affordable home furnishings only has 38 IKEA stores across the United States.

IKEA sells everything from kitchenware to beds. The catch is that the buyer must assemble most items.

"I just built my friend's desk that she bought in  California from IKEA," said Deborah Farmer, a UNLV student.

Farmer says college students currently go out of state to shop for IKEA furniture. She wishes the store would open sooner than 2016.
