Yoni Barrios Biography
Who is Yoni Barrios ?
Yoni Barrios, 32, was arrested shortly after the attack on two counts of open murder with a deadly weapon and six counts of attempted murder with a deadly weapon.
According to new information from a law enforcement official provided to an ABC chief investigative reporter, Barrios confessed during questioning by detectives, saying he was sorry and acknowledging that what he did was wrong.
His explanation of the mass stabbing was inconsistent, according to the law enforcement official. As of now, the police still believe that it was a random act and that the victims were randomly selected.
At the time of his arrest, Barrios had several phones in his possession. Investigators are searching those phones for data that may contain information about the attack.
Detectives are following up on a report that Barrios described himself as a cook, which police believe could explain why he was carrying a kitchen knife, the official told ABC.
The official also says police were told Barrios was at the Wynn resort, trying to get a custodial job.
Six of the victims remain hospitalized and three are said to be in critical condition, hospital officials told KTNV.
Barrios is expected to appear in court on Friday at 1:30 p.m.
