Woman shot dead in fight over COVID loans, couple charged

Two men face dozens of charges after a woman was shot and killed in a fight over COVID loan money, according to an arrest warrant released on Monday.

Kaveon Phillips, 19, was sentenced to the Clark County Detention Center on Wednesday. Another man, Dravion Griley, has been named as his co-accused but did not appear to be in custody on Monday evening. Court records show that an arrest warrant has been issued against his arrest.

Phillips and Griley each face 52 counts, including murder, in the October death of Ashley Green, 26. Green died of gunshot wounds to the back, the Clark County Coroner’s Office said.

Other charges included conspiracy, assault with a deadly weapon, attempted murder and unloading a gun at an occupied structure, court records show.

Few details were released at the time, but police were called to the Solaire Apartments, 1750 Karen Avenue, after a report of a shooting in the afternoon of October 30.

An investigation revealed that Phillips and Griley had a long-standing fight with another man, whose name had been redacted in the warrant. The man told police Phillips shot him several times in June and the initial argument started after a “discussion about money raised from covid loans.”

Surveillance video showed Phillips following another car, after which nine shots were fired.

According to the warrant, Green had driven the man back to his apartment after forgetting his money on his way to a convenience store.

Phillips is due in court on Jan.31.
