LAS VEGAS, Nevada –

A man wanted in connection with a woman’s death in Winters last month, finally surrendered to Las Vegas police early Tuesday morning.

The man, identified by U.S. Marshals as William Gardner, created a hostage situation at an apartment complex in Las Vegas late Monday night.

Gardner barricaded himself inside an apartment with a woman and small child inside.

Officers from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police and the U.S. Marshals surrounded the apartment complex. Negotiators were eventually able to convince Gardner to leave the apartment, and he was taken into custody.

Gardner is wanted for the murder of Leslie Pinkston. She was found shot in her car in downtown Winters on November 18.
