LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say the suspect in a deadly pharmacy robbery has been arrested.

Police arrested 25-year-old Jin Ackerman around 1 p.m. Friday at a residence on April Shower Place. It was not known if Ackerman has a lawyer.

Police Lt. Ray Steiber says homicide detectives are reviewing store security video of the 5 a.m. Friday robbery-slaying at a Walgreens store near Cheyenne Avenue and Durango Drive.

Steiber says the robber displayed a handgun and ushered two clerks, one male and one female, into a back room.

That's where the male clerk was shot dead.

Police aren't saying yet what was taken in the robbery.
