AIR DATE: February 18, 2014

A ranger with the Bureau of Land Management shot and killed a man near Red Rock National Conservation Area during a confrontation with law enforcement agents. The episode was captured on video and witnessed by several bystanders. The shooting happened after the man climbed into a Nevada Highway Patrol car and allegedly reached for a rifle. So do the accounts of witnesses match the account of law enforcement agencies? And how will this incident affect the sense of security for those visiting Red Rock?
