Post Date:02/05/2020 4:32 PM

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office has taken into custody a suspect in an abduction and shooting (separate incidents) that originated on the Carson Colony is South Carson.  Logan Odaye, 22 years old, born 12/5/1997, was taken into custody at the Max Casino at approximately 2:20 p.m. after allegedly battering and robbing an ex-girlfriend and then later shooting a neighbor of his on the Carson Colony late Tuesday evening.

 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 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 transported by Careflight to Renown Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.  Odaye was immediately identified as the suspect in the shooting and the weapon used was alleged 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 attempted to locate Odaye.  At approximately 1:30 p.m., 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 safeguarded until officers talked Odaye out of the room.  He was 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.
