EXCLUSIVE

0117_robert_thomas_mugshotThe person who allegedly shot and killed a man outside a Hollywood nightclub has been arrested ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Robert Earl Thomas III was hiding at a friend's house in Las Vegas when cops entered the premises last night and placed him under arrest for murder.  He surrendered without a struggle.

TMZ posted video of the shooter outside Empire nightclub when he aimed the gun and fired, killing one man and wounding another.  The video clearly shows the shooter and law enforcement tells us they got a number of tips from people who saw it and that led to Thomas' capture.

Thomas is 22 years old and lives in Los Angeles.

Thomas is currently being held in a Vegas jail and prosecutors plan to extradite him to California.

He's trying to look tough in his mug shot. Someone in the slammer will fix that for him.

If these guys had a beef, that's between them , but he so calmly just shot the victim in front of so many people , it is almost hard to believe. That said...I didn't see anything.

GOOD. Thank you to the police and those people who helped apprehend the 'alleged' killer.


Is this nothing more than publicity for you, TMZ? Why did you not even bother to ask people with information to call the LAPD (and provide the number)? I'm still in shock over the horrid racist comments you allowed to sit on your site for hours, despite the FLAGS. The victim's family and friends had to see that. Then again, you still haven't acknowledged the victim, have you?


For those interested, the name of the 19 year old victim was Andre Lowe. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.
