LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police have arrested two people in connection with the fatal shooting of a California man outside a northwest Las Vegas gym.

Authorities said Sunday that 27-year-old Kyle Staats and 19-year-old Megan Hippie are being held on first-degree murder, attempted robbery with a deadly weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery.

Staats also faces one count of possession of a stolen vehicle.

Police say 42-year-old Neil Brian Gandler, of Palo Alto, was found shot in his vehicle just after 1 a.m. Dec. 29 outside 24 Hour Fitness on Rainbow Boulevard near Alta Drive. Security video showed a sedan pull up next to Gandler’s vehicle.

The Clark County coroner’s office says Gandler died of a gunshot wound to the torso.

It was not known if either suspect had an attorney.
