Civilian Hero Stops Would-Be Mass Shooter in Las Vegas

Published on

A Las Vegas employee who works in a high-rise condo was the “good guy” with a firearm that stopped a potential mass shooter Friday. Social media went crazy over the security footage.

The shooter, Andrew Warrender, 32, has been charged with attempted murder, two counts of assault with the use of a deadly weapon, and illegally discharging a gun, after the incident in East Central Las Vegas, near the north end of the Las Vegas Strip. According to 8 News Now:

The police received a report of a shooting in the 300 block of Karen Avenue shortly after 3 pm on Friday. Officers found two individuals involved in the shooting, including one person who had been injured by a gunshot. This person is thought to be Warrender.

Warrender was being held in the Clark County Detention Center without bail as of Tuesday. According to records, he was taken into custody on Saturday. It was not possible to obtain a booking photo. Richard Schonfeld, the attorney for Warrender requested that a Clark County Judge postpone Warrender’s arraignment so that his client could attend. Records show that Warrender was unable to attend a hearing on Tuesday due to health reasons.

A resident claimed to have witnessed the incident.

The resident said that a man in a helmet was carrying an AR-15 as well as other weapons, when he entered into the towers on Friday afternoon. The resident then tells us that the man shot at the glass near the front desk. This was shown in the pictures provided by the resident. The resident believes that an employee from the towers stopped the attack and deserves to be recognized for their heroic actions.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police has not yet confirmed the details.

LVMPD tweeted that an injured subject was found and taken to a hospital for treatment.

The charges against Warrender suggest that the investigators believe one of the two people involved in the incident was the assailant, while the other person acted out of self-defense. LVMPD did not release any information on the “good guy”, who intervened to prevent what could have been a tragic mass murder if left alone. This may be due to the fear of violating Marsy’s law, which prohibits the disclosure of information that can help a defendant locate or harass the victim or his family.
