The Carson City Sheriff’s Office has taken into custody a suspect in an abduction and later a shooting, that originated on the Carson Colony in South Carson Tuesday evening. Logan Odaye, 22, was taken into custody at the Max Casino at approximately 2:20 p.m. the next day after allegedly battering and robbing an ex-girlfriend and then later shooting a neighbor on the Carson Colony.
On Tuesday evening at approximately 7 p.m., Deputies responded to a south Carson shopping center and into Douglas County on the report that a female had been robbed and battered at gunpoint by Logan Odaye. The victim alleged Odaye had lured her to the Colony address, battered her and forced her to travel to a shopping center to draw cash from a teller machine, where he battered her again. Later, while investigating the incident, the Sheriff’s Office received information at approximately 10:30 p.m. that a resident of the Carson Colony had been shot twice. Washoe Tribal Police, assisted by the Sheriff’s Office, and Fire/Paramedics responded.
The shooting victim was removed from the area and afterward transported by Careflight to Renown Medical Center in Reno with non-life threatening injuries. Odaye was immediately identified as the suspect in the shooting. The weapon used was said to be a 12 gauge shotgun. The female injured in the original call was treated and released at Carson Tahoe Medical Center.
Throughout the evening and into Wednesday, Deputies and Tribal Police tried to locate Odaye. At approximately 1:30 p.m. Wednesday security personnel at the Max Casino in downtown Carson reported they had spotted Odaye on the casino floor. Officers from multiple agencies converged on the casino and determined that Odaye had moved to a rented room on the second floor. The floor was evacuated and secured until officers could talk Odaye out of the room. He was eventually taken into custody without incident or damage to any property.
Odaye is being held at the Carson City Jail on the charges of Robbery with a Deadly Weapon (Felony), Assault with a Deadly Weapon (Felony), 1st Degree Kidnapping (Felony), Domestic Battery (Gross Misdemeanor), Contempt of Court (Carson Warrant), and a Douglas County Warrant. Bail is set at $100,000.
Anyone with information regarding these two separate incidents is encouraged to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 887-COPS(2677).
