Shooting in Las Vegas Courthouse

From CNN:

Two federal personnel were shot, one fatally, Monday in the lobby of a federal courthouse building in Las Vegas, Nevada, federal officials said.

“A deputy U.S. marshal and court security officer were shot at the Lloyd D. George Federal Courthouse in Las Vegas this morning,” said U.S. Marshals spokesman Jeff Carter.

“The gunman was shot by Marshals Service personnel and has been pronounced dead. The deputy U.S. Marshal is in stable condition at a local hospital. Unfortunately, the court security officer succumbed to his wounds and passed away.”

The incident occurred about 8 a.m. PT, FBI Special Agent Joseph Dickey said.

Authorities were in the process of securing the building, Carter said.

“We do not know the motive for the shooting at this time, and the investigation into the shooting is still under way,” he said.

  1. TDavis,

    Um, maybe it’s just me, but if I hear (or see) a gunfight in progress, I get the Hell out of the way! This cameraman is risking himself and possibly interfering with the cops. Stupid, stupid, stupid!

  2. Terry,

    I can’t understand how this guy isn’t the slightest bit freaked out by what’s going on. I mean, yea, him sticking around filming the whole thing is ballsy enough, but then calmly like “welp, i guess that’s it”…that’s odd to me, and for all he knew 40 people could have been killed and it’s not a big deal

  3. I can understand the desire to stick around and film the happenings, but please keep the panicked douchebag comments under a tight, tight filter.
