Las Vegas Teens in 2-Hour Crime Spree: Accused of Killing Bicyclist, Crashing Stolen Cars, and Attempting Second Murder, Say Sources

Las Vegas, NV - Two Las Vegas teenagers are facing a slew of serious charges after a shocking and harrowing crime spree that left a cyclist dead and the community in shock. According to sources close to the investigation, the young suspects allegedly went on a rampage that included attempting to kill a second cyclist, stealing three cars, and committing a burglary - all within a span of just two hours. These startling details have been brought to light by 8 News Now Investigators.

The primary suspect, Jesus Ayala, who was 17 years old at the time of the alleged crime spree but is now 18, is facing a staggering 18 charges, including murder, attempted murder, battery with the use of a deadly weapon, leaving the scene of an accident, and multiple larceny and burglary charges, as revealed in official records.

Accompanying Ayala in this shocking series of events is Jzamir Keys, aged 16, identified as the second suspect. Keys, believed to have been the passenger in the vehicle during the fatal incident, is facing charges of murder, attempted murder, and battery.

The charges stem from their alleged involvement in the death of 64-year-old Andreas “Andy” Probst, a retired California police chief. Probst was tragically killed while riding his bicycle in a marked lane near Tenaya Way and Centennial Parkway in the northwest Las Vegas valley on August 14. Disturbingly, documents indicate that Ayala intentionally crashed into him.

Initially classified as a hit-and-run, Probst's death took a chilling turn when a student brought forward a video capturing the alleged murder. This video was then reported to a school resource officer, who promptly alerted the authorities. In the aftermath, Ayala was taken into custody the morning after the hit-and-run, while Keys was arrested on Tuesday. Both were subsequently certified as adults within the court system on the following Wednesday.

The vehicle used in the fatal collision was located abandoned near Craig Road and Jones Boulevard, mere minutes from the crash site. Disturbingly, it was discovered with blood on its windshield.

Prior to Probst's tragic death, the teenagers reportedly attempted to strike another cyclist in the Fort Apache and Washburn roads area, just half an hour earlier, according to police reports.

Following Probst's death, the young suspects allegedly engaged in a spree of car thefts in the vicinity of Lake Mead Boulevard and Torrey Pines Drive, sources have disclosed. Approximately an hour after the fatal collision, the stolen cars were crashed into each other near a shopping plaza at Lake Mead and Rainbow boulevards, according to the same sources.

The suspects then allegedly broke into a garage, where they pilfered several items, before returning to the location where Probst had been fatally struck, using one of the two crashed stolen cars, as sources indicate.

While officers managed to apprehend Ayala, Keys managed to evade capture, sources said.

In a disturbing twist, as 8 News Now Investigators previously reported in August, authorities did not have sufficient evidence in the immediate aftermath of the crash to charge Ayala with murder, as the video evidence did not surface until two weeks later.

Both teenagers made their initial appearances in adult court on Thursday, further marking a somber chapter in this alarming and tragic case.
