LAS VEGAS — LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say a patron who died at an after-hours nightclub in a Las Vegas Strip casino after trying to subdue a man who shot two club employees is 40 year old Kenneth Brown. He was fatally shot after wrestling the gunman to the ground early Monday at Drai’s After Hours inside Bally’s hotel-casino, according to charging documents filed Tuesday.
Norma Sattiewhite is the mother of Kenneth Brown. She tells KXNT her son was ” doing everything he could to protect his friends inside the club “. Sattiewhite went on to say that she will find it in her heart to forgive the shooter. Benjamin Frazier, a 41-year-old ex-convict with a history of alcohol-related arrests at Las Vegas Strip clubs, faces murder, attempted murder and weapons charges in the deadly dispute.
The sheriff called Brown a hero. “Security professionals and a heroic patron who lost his life prevented what could have been even more death and injury,” he said. Brown recently moved to Las Vegas from Los Angeles . He worked as a club promoter and stand-up comedian.
