Police release more details into carjacking, deadly home invasions

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- There are new details about the carjacking and home invasions that happened on Tuesday, resulting in two deaths.

Police have released the name of the female suspect in the incident that began around 6:45 a.m. The following home invasions led to the deaths of two people, including her alleged accomplice.

Natasha Galenn Jackson, 35, of Las Vegas, is facing charges of murder with a deadly weapon, attempted murder with a deadly weapon, burglary with a firearm, attempted home invasion, kidnapping with a deadly weapon, robbery with a deadly weapon and attempted robbery with a deadly weapon.

According to a police report, Jackson and 27-year-old Cody Winters were stopped on the side of U.S. Highway 95 in a stolen vehicle.

A highway safety vehicle stopped to help, believing the couple to be in distress, but Winters pulled a gun on the driver. After loading some items in the emergency services vehicle, the suspects demanded to be driven to a new location.

The suspects told the Nevada Department of Transportation employee to exit onto westbound Tropicana Avenue. They then told him to turn into an apartment complex. However, the NDOT employee was not able to make the turn so he turned onto Rollingwood Drive instead and pulled over.

Jackson and Winters unloaded their stuff and walked to 3930 Autumn Street. They knocked on the door and asked to use the phone. Once inside, Winters pulled a gun on a man in the house.

The resident and suspect fought for control of the gun, and Jackson told police she helped stab the resident’s wife with a screwdriver. Two children, who were in the house at the time, witnessed the fight.

Winters then gained control of the gun and shot and killed the resident, who has been identified as Richard Ramos by his family.

The two suspects then went out the rear door and went over the wall into two yards on Almondwood Drive. They attempted to gain entry to one house but failed. Next, they busted into a vacant house.

By that time, the police had arrived and Jackson said she told Winters to shoot the officers. She then attempted to flee the house and was arrested. Winters then entered the house next door and shot another homeowner. Winters then exited the home and was confronted by Las Vegas police. That is where he was shot and killed.

The Clark County coroner has not revealed the names of the two people who were killed in the incident.
