Las Vegas man chases and guns down his own grandmother in front of horrified neighbors
Las Vegas police responded to a shooting Tuesday afternoon and found a woman in her mid-to-late 80s lying on the street with a gunshot wound to the head, the Las Vegas Sun reported.
Neighbors called police when they saw the woman bleeding and running down the street being chased by the gunman before he fired the weapon. No one is sure why. They tried to see if they could help but they said she was killed instantly.
For three hours the armed suspect hid in his backyard from police while the neighborhood was evacuated and SWAT officers swarmed the area. He ultimately gave himself up at 8 p.m.
An initial investigation revealed that the alleged shooter had no criminal record and it isn’t known if his gun was purchased legally. Another young man who lived in the house with the woman was not hurt.
