New charges added to, mugshot released of murder suspect

By Troy Torres

The Clark County District Attorney has added several new charges against Christopher McDonnell, who is accused of murdering Kevin Mendiola, Jr. in Henderson, Nevada on Thanksgiving morning.

Mr. McDonnell now faces 20 charges, including the new charges of attempted murder and several more felonies associated with his alleged involvement in several drive by shootings on Thanksgiving.

No charging documents yet appear in the Henderson Justice Court docket for the other two suspects in the case: Shawn McDonnell, 30, and Kayleigh Lewis, 25. All three suspects are residents of Tyler, Texas, and are alleged to have driven up from Tyler to Henderson to begin their shooting spree, before continuing south to Parkway, Arizona, where they were captured by police there.

The Henderson Police Department released Christopher McDonnell's mugshot, which you can view below:
