A man suspected of murder in Las Vegas remained in custody Thursday after police apprehended him in Ridgeview-Webster.

Authorities received a tip that the suspect was at a family member’s house in the 4900 block of Date Street, according to OnScene.TV.

San Diego police set up a perimeter nearby early Wednesday, while also placing a spike strip near the suspect’s car, and waited for him to leave the house.

Once he did so, he stopped on Elm Street, where officers approached him at gunpoint at about 6:45 a.m. The suspect surrendered without incident.

KTNV, the ABC affiliate in Las Vegas, identified the suspect as Michael Ricks, 24. He is accused of stabbing his ex-girlfriend, Makayla Michelle Ali Adams, late Tuesday.

A 1-year-old child was present at the time of the murder, but was not harmed.

The station reported that Ricks would be extradited to Las Vegas to face a murder charge.
