Driver who shot man acted in self-defense, Vegas police say


Las Vegas police say a driver who shot and killed a man climbing into his SUV likely won’t be arrested because it was apparently self-defense.

Police Lt. Dan McGrath tells the Review-Journal the driver warned the man before firing the fatal shots late Sunday.

He says the SUV full of people, including a baby, stopped to let another driver know there was a man clinging to his pickup truck.

But when the SUV came to a halt, the man went over to it instead.

McGrath say a teenager in the back seat was fighting off the intruder when the driver grabbed a gun and hit the man with it.

Police say he kept coming and ignored the warning before the driver fired. He died at the hospital. He was not immediately identified
