Neighbor Steps in, Shoots Man About to Assault Woman With This


Like a good neighbor, help is right here!

A helpful armed neighbor was able to step in when a domestic dispute got physical in the west-central valley outside Las Vegas, NV. Monday night shortly after 11 p.m. in the 5900 block of Fawn Avenue.

A man and a woman were arguing on the sidewalk outside a home near West Washington Avenue and North Jones Boulevard before the man began fighting her, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. CJ Jenkins said. The neighbor heard the fight, went outside, saw the man pick up a brick and raise it as if to hit the woman, he said.

The armed neighbor drew his weapon, took aim, and dropped the man before he could beat the woman with the brick.

“The citizen’s actions prevented the female from being struck,” Jenkins said.

The abusive suspect was transported to University Medical Center where he is expected to survive from the gunshot wound.

Jenkins said the neighbor will not face any charges stemming from the incident.
