LAS VEGAS, NV – a 21-year-old Las Vegas man has been arrested for allegedly carrying out what police are calling a “Thrill kill”.
The victim was a sleeping homeless man. Police claim he also shot a second man who was walking his dog in the park.
Noah Green was picked up on July 18th near his Las Vegas apartment.
Surveillance video that captured the murder on July 13th shows what appears to be Green walking up to a 48-year-old Brent Lloyd, who was asleep on the sidewalk. There was no conversation. There was no interaction. The suspect just walked up, pointed the gun, fired and then fled into the apartment complex where Green lived.
Lloyd was found with a gunshot wound to the head.
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police began canvassing the neighborhood and the complex, showing the video to residents. One of the residents recognized the man in the video as Green. When police arrested Green, he had a 9mm pistol in his pocket, wrapped in a paper sack.
After receiving a warrant to search his phone, the LVMPD digital forensics team found video of the shooting of Lloyd, from the shooter’s perspective. Police were disturbed to find video of a second shooting.
On July 15th, according to the New York Post,:
“a man walking his dog just 400 feet from where Lloyd was killed was shot in the chest by a man at “very close range,” police said.
“the victim remained in critical condition as of July 20th.”
Fox5 News aired the press conference via Facebook Live. It begins at the 4 minute mark.
Homicide Lt. Ray Spencer said:
“We are confident in saying today that we believe that we have taken a very dangerous person off the streets,”
“We believe that he would have committed murder again had it not been for the actions of this agency…I will tell you: I’ve been a police officer for 22 years. I lead the homicide section. The videos are absolutely disturbing.”
Green has been charged murder, use of a deadly weapon, and attempted murder. He is currently being held without bail in the Clark County Detention Center. He was scheduled to be in court yesterday, but no details of that appearance have been released.
This all happened just days after a subway rider attacked two elderly men with a knife, completely unprovoked.

QUEENS, NY – In an unprovoked attack, Patrick Chambers, 46 years old, slashed two elderly men on a No. 7 train.
At around 7:30 am on Sunday, July 5, Chambers was riding as a straphanger on the train towards 52nd St.-Lincoln Ave station in Sunnyside.
Witnesses said that Chambers suddenly yelled to the two elderly gentlemen, who turned out to be 71 and 73:
“Why aren’t you with your children?”
Chambers then “charged” at one of the men with a knife, slashing in the forearm. The second man tried to help the stabbed man, at which point he was stabbed as well.

Both men were knocked to the ground.
Video obtained shows that when the men stood back up, Chambers again lunges towards one of the men, stabbing him repeatedly.
Chambers was forced to back away when an MTA employee intervened, and Chambers went into another car.
When the train stopped at the 52nd St.-Lincoln Ave station, police responded and arrested Chambers.
The charges against Chambers were two counts of assault and menacing, as well as criminal possession of a weapon.
For unreported reasons, Chambers was in the hospital for a week following his arrest, and had not yet been to an arraignment hearing.
NYPD Transit Chief Edward Delatorre said in a tweet:
“The suspect was arrested moments later, charged with multiple counts of felony assault, menacing, and criminal possession of a weapon, and is currently awaiting prosecution.”
