LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Las Vegas Metro police said a storage facility employee was arrested after he shot and killed a man he thought was committing a crime on Friday evening. 

Officers responded to the incident at 7:08 p.m. at a storage unit at 7441 West Lake Mead Boulevard, near Buffalo Drive. 

Citing the investigation, police said the shooting victim, Jeffrey Paget, was at the storage facility attempting to break into a motorhome. The on-site manager, identified as 60-year-old Martin Maycock, approached Paget and asked him what he was doing on the property. 

Paget claimed the motorhome belonged to his friend then retreated back into his unmarked cargo van after telling Maycock to "mind his own business," the report said. Paget began to back up when Maycock fired his weapon towards the front driver's side tire but missed. He fired a second time and the bullet went through the driver's side window striking Paget in the chest. 

Maycock told police he fired his gun because he was afraid he would get hit as Paget drove towards him, the report said. After reviewing surveillance video from the premises, homicide detectives said Paget was attempting to flee the scene when Maycock opened fire. Maycock was not in the path of the van as it attempted to drive away. 

Paget was taken to University Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased.  

Maycock remained at the scene and was arrested for one count of murder. 

Anyone with information on this incident is urged to contact Metro's Homicide Section at 702-828-3521 or by email. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
