Wendover Teen Fatally Shot

A 15-year-old boy died Sunday evening in a shooting, and his older brother was arrested in connection with the incident, police said. Elko County School Superintendent Jeff Zander said the victim was a student at West Wendover High School. Officers were called to a home on Ash Street on the Nevada side of Wendover at about 7 pm to discover the boy had been shot in the torso, and despite efforts from medical personnel, the juvenile died at the scene. Officers were initially told the older brother of the victim, 21-year-old Ivan Lopez of West Wendover, “had accidentally shot his brother.” Lopez left the scene when emergency crews responded but returned a short while later and turned himself in to be booked into the Elko County Jail. Family members who were in the home are cooperating with the investigation.
