The North Las Vegas police released video of homicide suspect Alonso Perez from Sept. 2 when he broke his handcuffs and escaped from a police office. He was apprehended four days later, and booked for murder with a deadly weapon, discharging a firearm into an occupied structure, escape, and grand larceny auto. (North Las Vegas Police Department)
On Friday, an FBI task force apprehended Perez, the 25-year-old suspect in a fatal shooting that took place near a North Las Vegas McDonald’s on Aug. 27. The FBI turned Perez over to the North Las Vegas police, whose officers brought Perez to an interview room at the detective bureau station. They shackled his legs together and handcuffed one arm to a metal bar screwed to a tabletop. Every so often, a detective checked on Perez.
Otherwise, the suspect was alone — except for a camera in the corner of the room, which caught Perez as he began to break his bonds. No one was watching the video feed. And then, as The Washington Post reported Monday, Perez disappeared.
