LAS VEGAS -- Family and friends say a game of dice lead to a murder Wednesday, and police are still looking for the killer, who is on the run.

Family members describe what happened as cold-blooded murder.

"I'm still in shock. I have nothing to say. I'm speechless," said Donna Abroms, a family member of the victim.

The family is tying to understand how a game of dice got out of hand and led to the murder of Abro's 24-year-old cousin Christopher Dewayne Jones. Police officers believe 21-year old Anishya Douglas fired the deadly shots.

"She was just playing dice with him that same day and the day before that," Abroms said.

Jones' family members say a Facebook post angered Douglas.

Jones posted a comment claiming he was robbed playing dice. Witnesses say Douglas knocked on Jones's apartment door, where she confronted him and then shot him six times in the back in front of little children and took off.

"It's no feelings. It's no what so ever. She needs to be caught. She needs to be gone," Abroms said.

The shooting happened Wednesday afternoon at apartments on Marion Drive.

John Jones, who was a friend of the victim, says he has seen many dice games played here turn violent.

"They can get real intense," John Jones said. "I've seen people get beat up and stabbed before over dice games."
