A suspect is dead after messing with the wrong person Tuesday morning. North Las Vegas Police say a man tried to carjack a security guard at about 6 in the morning near Gowan and I-15.

The intended victim and the suspect got into a shootout. The security guard was taken to the hospital with a minor wound. The suspect was taken to UMC where he later died.

Police say the security guard may not face any charges, because it appears he was acting in self defense.

Skimpy on the detail but perhaps a good result if the security guard is not prosecuted for defending himself.

The security guard should be paid bounty for taking out the trash and given more ammunition.

I’m don’t know what your originally posted graphic was but the one that “dropline.net” replaced it with is very appropriate!

This could have been phrased better (probably standard MSM spin), but IMHO every shooting incident where people have died deserves investigation without prejudice. Even if the situation appears slam-dunk...

Rest assured, that already occurs regardless of your opinion.
