Las Vegas police said the shooting occurred during a heated argument between the two men on Monday, May 13. At around 7 p.m. that day, Eddi Moreno’s wife called 911 saying a neighbor was “causing a disturbance and grabbing their genitalia” on Starline Meadow Place near Lake Mead Boulevard and Anasazi Drive, according to documents.

“I need police here right now,” she said, heard in the audio of the 911 call first obtained by the 8 News Now Investigators. “This guy who just moved in next door is tweaking out. He keeps on grabbing his [expletive].”

Several gunshots were then fired.

“He just moved in. He’s yelling at us as we just pulled into the driveway,” Eddi Moreno’s wife said. “He starts pulling his [expletive] out in front of all of my kids so my husband shot him.”

“During the argument, Joe stood on a large boulder… and pulled his penis and scrotum out and began thrusting towards Eddie [sic] and [the witness] resulting in Eddie [sic] shooting Joe,” documents said “[Joe Moreno] begins making threats and Eddie [sic] tells his wife to grab his gun and call 911. Eddie [sic] advised [Joe] not to come towards him and warns [Joe] that he would shoot. The male came towards Eddie [sic] while reaching in his pants and Eddie [sic] shot [Joe],” documents said.

Joe Moreno was located inured in his driveway, documents said. Paramedics brought him to the hospital where a doctor pronounced him deceased. Officers located five cartridges casings in the area.

A witness told police that earlier in the day, she and Joe Moreno had a fight, which left him “locked out” of the home, documents said.

A doorbell camera captured the incident, which recorded the following conversation, according to detectives:

Eddi Moreno: “You’re going to get [expletive] up right here.”

Joe Moreno: “[Goddamn], you’re going to kill me.”

Eddi Moreno: “I don’t give a [expletive], I am going to murder you, come right here. Imma murder you blood.”

Joe Moreno: “Who you going to murder?”

Eddi Moreno: “You.”

A minute later, Eddi Moreno reportedly said, “That’s what he gets. He’s not going to do that in front of my kids. Are you crazy?” documents said.

In addition to his bail, Eddi Moreno was told to have no contact with the victim’s girlfriend and is not allowed to have firearms at his property.

Eddi Moreno’s next court date was scheduled for August 13.
