Gun Shot Suicide at the Siegel Suites
I was about to leave to go to the grocery store, but I forgot something. I walked back in our place and heard the helicopters. I could see they were circling around our building. I went back inside and heard a gun shot. If I had not turned back I would have been outside during the gun shot. Metro showed up so fast and told us all to go back into our units. The incident was right next to our place. This was our neighbor.
The cops came so fast, that I believe they were on their way. Which means this suicide is most likely because this man was on the run. When the cops arrived they were in full gear and weapons. They were expecting him to fire back on them. They had not realized that the gun shot was a fatal one at this point. Since they arrived so fast, I believe they were ripped off at this man’s location. At this time we do not know what crimes he has committed.
We could see the whole incident from our apartment. There was a man on the floor hanging out of the door way. He was a middle aged white male. What it appears to be is a suicide from a gun shot. He lived on the second floor of the Tropicana Siegel Suites. The metro were there so quickly that it is apparent they were tipped off in some way. The man must have called the police before he killed himself.
This happened right where we live. The metro police came in full military gear. They had their shields and everything. They were unsure if the man was going to fire at other people. When they arrived, he was still alive, but had deadly injuries. They could not save him or move him in time. He died within a couple minutes of the metro’s arrival.
They have now put up caution tape around where we live. This is now a crime scene. Some of the neighbors are out of their units talking about this insane incident. Some of the neighbors are peaking out of their units, other people like our next door neighbor. He is complaining that the cops have put the caution tape in the way of the soda machines. He is finding this Suicide to be inconvenient to his daily schedule.
These things occur more often then you realize when you live at a weekly apartment building in Las Vegas. People become very immune to metro busting down the doors, or people killing themselves. If it was a suicide, I have a lot of experience with that, being that my mom committed suicide. My heart goes out to the loved ones. He is in a way better place. Believe you me! The next life is always better than the current.
