AG: Clark County Commissioner Won’t Be Charged

View Comments

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Nevada attorney general’s office has decided not to charge Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins with a gross misdemeanor charge of aiming or discharging a firearm where persons are endangered.

Chief Deputy Attorney General Thom Gover told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that his office determined there was a lack of evidence after reviewing police reports.

North Las Vegas police investigated a shooting incident that occurred less than an hour before the start of the Fourth of July. No one was arrested or injured in the shooting.

A witness maintains at least seven gunshots were fired from Collins’ North Las Vegas property the night of July 3.

Collins would not confirm whether he fired a weapon that night, saying only that he performed his “usual celebration” of the Fourth of July.
