NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev.April 27 2011 — North Las Vegas police arrested a man for attempted murder after he allegedly fired shots at a camera crew filming a reality show.
Police say 40-year-old Carlos Barron became angry after a van was parked in front of his home on Vigilante Court, near Losee Road and East Centennial Parkway. Police say Barron assaulted one of the people in the van after demanding they move the vehicle.
The people in the van belonged to a film crew of the show “Repo Games.” They were shooting a repossession that was occurring in Barron’s neighborhood.
After Barron struck the person inside the van, crew members confronted him. He allegedly pulled a gun from his waistband and opened fire. The victims fled the area before calling police and Barron went back into his home.
Police say Barron then barricaded himself inside the house. After a two hours standoff, Barron tried to flee out his back door. He was arrested and taken into custody.
Barron was booked into the North Las Vegas Detention Center for attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, aiming or discharging a firearm where a person might be in danger, and obstructing a police officer.
