Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Bail was set at more than $1 million Thursday morning for 20-year-old Demetrius Black.

Black is accused of shooting and killing a teenager in 2012 at a house party in northwest Las Vegas.

Black was already in custody when evidence linked him to the murder of 17-year-old Betty "Jay" Pinkey.

Police say that Black is a known gang member.

His next court hearing is scheduled for May 21.
