Portland murder suspect arrested in Las Vegas

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS, NV (KPTV) -

FBI agents and Las Vegas-area police have arrested a murder suspect accused of gunning down an 18-year-old at a Portland gas station in 2013.

Lonnell George, 23, had a murder warrant out for his arrest in connection with the killing of Edward Paden Jr., who was killed at the Valero Gas Station at Northeast 60th Avenue and Killingsworth Street on March 27, 2013.

Paden was found dead at the scene of the crime.

Police later announced George as the suspect in the killing, and Crime Stoppers offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

It wasn't immediately clear what led police to find George in Las Vegas, but he was taken into custody at a Vegas apartment by the Las Vegas FBI Criminal Apprehension Team on Wednesday.

Anyone who may have additional information about Paden's killing or about George is asked to contact Detective Rico Beniga at rico.beniga@portlandoregon.gov.
