Pastor shot and killed in front of his kids

LAS VEGAS, NV – A 46-year-old pastor, Nick Davi, was tragically shot and killed in his own driveway over an alleged dispute with his neighbor, 36-year-old Joe Junio. The heartbreaking incident occurred in full view of the pastor’s family, including his two children, at their townhouse in the gated community, Courts at Aliante in North Las Vegas, a month ago.

Davi, who served Grace Point Church, had been dealing with harassment from Junio, a fellow resident of the same community, for weeks. Davi and his family had to vacate their home due to the ongoing terror, shared Ty Neal, another pastor at Grace Point Church.

The conflict seemingly escalated following the pastor’s complaint to the homeowners association regarding Junio. In response to this, Junio allegedly turned violent, as outlined in the wrongful death lawsuit lodged by Davi’s wife, Sarah.

According to eyewitness accounts, Junio confronted the family as they were leaving their residence, resulting in a heated exchange and culminating in Davi getting shot in his abdomen. Sarah Davi was also shot during the incident while their two children, aged 12 and 15, watched the tragic event unfold within their car.

Following the shooting, both the pastor and his wife were rushed to the University Medical Center where Davi succumbed to his injuries. His children managed to record the horrifying incident using their phone.

Junio, a licensed professional with the Nevada Real Estate Division, was arrested at the scene and has since been charged with multiple offenses. These include open murder with a deadly weapon, attempted murder, battery, child abuse/neglect, and discharging a firearm where a person might be endangered.

A wrongful death lawsuit, already filed, demands in unspecified amount in damages. Despite HOA not being a party in the lawsuit, it accuses the organization of failing to act despite being aware of the threat Junio posed following the dispute.

The accused is currently held at the Clark County Detention Center on a $300,000 bail, and is scheduled for a preliminary court hearing on March 4, 2024.
