Metro Police: Hit-and-Run Crash At Courthouse Was Intentional
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say a crash involving a witness in a murder case who was struck by a car on a sidewalk outside a Las Vegas courthouse was an intentional act.
Las Vegas police Capt. Andrew Walsh said Monday the victim knows and described the driver of the cream-colored Cadillac sedan that hit her and drove away.
Police are looking for the car.
Walsh says it's not immediately clear whether the crash was directly related to the murder trial where the woman is on the witness list.
Police didn't immediately identify the injured woman. Walsh says she suffered a lower leg injury in the lunchtime crash at the bottom of concrete stairs outside the downtown Regional Justice Center.
Court officials say the woman was at the courthouse for the trial of 24-year-old Asa Brown.
Brown is accused of fatally shooting a 47-year-old man last September at a Las Vegas apartment complex.
