Bail set at $500K for 2 Arizonans held in Vegas shooting

LAS VEGAS — A judge in Las Vegas set bail at $500,000 for an Arizona woman
and her boyfriend, who remain jailed in a Christmas week shooting that left a
motorist badly wounded on the Las Vegas Strip.

Brittanie Merritt-Burwell, 21, of Glendale, Ariz., and Joshua Youngblood, made a brief court appearance
Monday. They were arrested last week at a Las Vegas fast-food restaurant.

Both face a Jan. 17 preliminary hearing of evidence in the Dec. 23 shooting.

Merritt-Burwell is accused of the attempted murder of a man who was shot in the neck, in
what witnesses and police describe as a traffic dispute.

Merritt-Burwell later told police she was defending herself.

Youngblood, 28, is accused of carrying a concealed weapon and
harboring a felony offender.
