LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities say a third teenager is in custody in the shooting death of a 17-year-old in what has been attributed to a deadly game of “Russian roulette.”

Henderson police Officer Scott Williams said the male arrested as a juvenile late Wednesday could face charges as an adult including tampering with evidence and accessory to murder.

Two other teens, ages 16 and 17, were arrested June 8.

They appeared Thursday as adults with their lawyers before a Henderson judge who scheduled a July 2 preliminary hearing of evidence.

The Associated Press is not naming the teens because they are juveniles.

Court documents say police obtained video of the body of Matthew Minkler in a kitchen of an abandoned house hours before it was found in a closet with an expletive reference to his name spray-painted on the door.
