A man auditioning to be a go-go dancer at a Las Vegas nightclub fired six shots during a scuffle with security personnel Saturday night, according to a police report.
The shooting happened about 11:50 p.m. at Share Night Club at 4635 Wynn Rd.
According to the arrest report from Las Vegas Metro police, a security guard told officers that 24-year-old Maxwell Mullen has been auditioning to be a dancer at the club, and was drunk and irate. The guard said he escorted Mullen to the parking lot where he began making threats to retrieve his gun and shoot someone in the head.
The guard said Mullen asked his date to unlock his car so he could get his gun, according to the report. He said Mullen's date unlocked his car, and Mullen then got his gun out of his glove box. He said Mullen then cocked the gun and fired two shots at him. He said he wrestled Mullen to the ground and then heard another four shots.
According to the report, Mullen claimed to be afraid for his life and asked to speak to an attorney when questioned by police. Mullen's date said he never heard Mullen make any threats toward security personnel.
Mullen suffered injuries to his face during the scuffle, according to the report. He was treated at University Medical Center.
Mullen was charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon.
