LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say they’ve arrested a 27-year-old man accused of killing another man at the Clark County Wetlands Park a week ago.

Authorities say they arrested Robert Williams in connection with the death of 32-year-old Chester Cullen.

Coroner’s officials say Cullen died of multiple gunshot wounds and was found in the park the afternoon of April 1.

Police say it appears Williams burglarized a home and stole a gun, then shot Cullen with it when they encountered each other in the park.

Williams was arrested April 2 after a separate burglary and standoff with police.

Detectives say they later determined the same gun was used in both incidents.

The nature preserve is located on the eastern side of the Las Vegas valley and features a visitors’ center and walking paths.
