No charges yet in alleged murder attempt
April 17, 2013
A charge is to be filed by today against a 20-year-old Las Vegas man in custody for allegedly stabbing his great-grandfather with a knife.
Prosecutor Erik Levin told East Fork Justice Tom Perkins on Wednesday he expected to file a criminal complaint against Bradley Endsley Jr. by the end of the week.
"I do anticipate a serious felony charge," Levin said.
Perkins let Endlsey's bail of $100,000 stand.
Douglas County Sheriff's deputies and East Fork paramedics responded early Monday to a report of a gunshot victim on Slate Road in Topaz Ranch Estates.
When deputies arrived they found Endsley inside the home holding a knife.
As deputies issued orders to Endsley, the victim, an 82-year-old man, pulled into the driveway bleeding from a stab wound. The man told deputies that he was attacked by Endsley, and managed to escape before deputies arrived, Sgt. Pat Brooks said.
Deputies forced their way into the home and placed Endsley into custody for attempted murder.
The reason for the attack is still being investigated. No one else was injured, Brooks said.
Medics treated the victim, who was flown to Renown Regional Medical Center where he underwent surgery.
