Lamar Adams

She managed to survive until the age of 42, which is no small feat for a ‘burner.


The Reno Police Department announced the arrest of a suspect in a fatal shooting Wednesday night at La Quinta Inn near Wooster High School.

Lamar Adams, 47, was booked on an open murder charge, the Reno Police Department said Saturday. Open murder means if convicted Adams could face as serious of a charge as first degree murder or it could be manslaughter.

Police said they found Adams driving a stolen vehicle in the area of Terminal Way, which is on the other side of Interstate 580 from Market Street.

Police identified the victim as Lynette Lozano, 42.

Police said Adams confessed to shooting Lozano and said the two had been living together at the time of the shooting.

Police said they received a report of shots fired May 13 at about 10:37 p.m. in the 4000 block of Market Street just north of Wooster High School.
