Neighbor claiming self-defense in slaying in Las Vegas home
March 17, 2005, 10:59 AM EST Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version
A woman is dead after a neighbor let her in his Las Vegas apartment and shot her dead when she grabbed a knife.
Police say it appears to be a case of self-defense. They say the woman appeared deranged as she went door-to-door about 9:20 PM Wednesday night in a complex in the city's northwest.
The neighbor let the woman in his apartment and tells police he tried to help, but she wasn't making any sense. He says she threatened him with a knife, and that's when he shot her dead.

It seems the bad news cycles through the country with NV getting some right now. It is a tough call to help someone who may be deranged or seems out of sorts with themselves and wind up dead yourself.
As you slide down the banister of life,
May the splinters never point the wrong way.
