A Las Vegas man accused of fatally shooting a 9-year-old boy in an adjacent apartment reportedly quoted “Scarface” before firing his rifle.Eliazar Quintero, 41, was in his apartment entertaining two other women when his gun went off on March 7, according to an arrest warrant obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.One of the women, who was not identified, later allegedly told Metropolitan Police how Quintero walked out of his bedroom holding a rifle — and pointed it at a wall saying, “Say hello to my little friend.”The woman said the gun then went off and Quintero seemed shocked, according to the arrest warrant.Meanwhile, on the other side of the wall, SirArmani Clark, 9, was sitting on the couch watching “Spongebob” with his brother, Honor Tate, 6, when the bullet pierced through their living room wall.The bullet struck SirArmani in the head, shattering before hitting Honor in the leg.SirAmani was then brought to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, while his brother was being treated for his non-life-threatening wounds.Following the shooting, multiple witnesses said they saw Quintero fleeing the apartment with multiple firearms.Friends also told police that Quintero left firearms in their backyard and told them he needed a place to hide.Metropolitan Police finally named Quintero as the suspect in the shooting death of SirAmani last month, saying he will now face a second-degree murder charge.Quintero had prior convictions for possession of a controlled substance and grand theft out of California and was already in custody on gun and drug convictions, police said. He is currently serving a two to five year sentence.Quintero was also supposed to be sentenced on a charge of ownership or possession of a firearm by a prohibited person just two days after the shooting, but failed to show up to court, according to records obtained by KLAS.The judge then reportedly issued a bench warrant for his arrest, and he was taken into custody on March 10.Quintero has yet to be arraigned on the murder charge, and it is unclear if he has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.
