A man who was shot to death by a pawn shop owner who told police he feared the man was going to rob him has been identified as 41-year-old Thomas Cola, the Clark County coroner's office said today.
The cause of death was listed as a penetrating gunshot wound to the back, a coroner's office spokeswoman said.
Metro Police arrested 59-year-old Victor Park, owner of the Sahara Pawn Shop at 2400 S. Jones Blvd., near Sahara Avenue. Police are still investigating the shooing that occurred at about 5:07 p.m. Friday at the pawn shop.
When patrol officers arrived at the business, they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound, police said. The man was taken to University Medical Center's Trauma Unit, where he was pronounced dead a short time later, police said.
Metro homicide detectives arrived at the scene and began a preliminary investigation that resulted in the arrest of Park.
Park was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on a charge of murder with a deadly weapon, according to detention center records.
Shooting a Person in the Back
Shooting someone in the back would almost give the authorities that you may have shot them while he was trying to escape. Can we say "manslaughter" together? If he decides to leave the scene, that's fine with me!
