LAS VEGAS -- Metro Police released surveillance video on Thursday of a shootout that happened on Dec. 15 at a bus stop in front of the Paris hotel-casino.
In a news conference, Metro said the security guard, identified by friends as Craig Dobson, acted in self defense when he shot and killed 35-year-old Christopher Boudinot.
“It does appear, after what our investigation has unveiled, that this is truly an act of self-defense,” said Lt. Ray Steiber of Metro Police.
Officers said Boudinot was escorted off the RTC bus after he got into an argument over an invalid bus pass. Police said when Boudinot exited, he led the guard to believe he was going to apologize, but instead he pulled out his gun and began shooting.
