A building employee of Las Vegas’ Turnberry Towers is being hailed as a hero by residents for shooting a man who was firing upon the building’s front desk on Friday.
KTNV reports a man wearing a helmet had an AR-15 and other weapons when he entered the towers Friday afternoon. The gunman then fired at the front desk, shattering glass but not hitting anyone.
That is when the resident said the building employee fired at the gunman, hitting him and causing him to try to flee the area while still be shot at by the employee.
Security video shows the moment when the shooter was exiting the building after being shot.
Channel 13 spoke with the resident to get their story. Law enforcement has not confirmed the following details.
According to the resident, a man wearing a helmet had an AR-15 and other weapons when he entered the towers Friday afternoon.
This is when the resident tells us the man fired shots in the area of the front desk, shattering glass which is shown in pictures they have provided to us.
The resident says it was an employee of the towers who stopped the attack, and thinks they are a hero who deserves recognition for stepping in. . . .
It was a resident. Unprovoked, never had issues with anyone here,just went to his car, grabbed an AK and came back in and shot the front lobby up. Homberto, who works in receiving is a hero. He shot the armed man and saved so many lives. Nobody was injured other than the shooter.
The Friday wannabe shooter in Vegas didn’t make the MSM news cycle because it didn’t fit their narrative. This was a classic story of a good guy with a gun that saved the day and these guys should be hailed as heroes!
