LAS VEGAS (AP) — Sentencing is scheduled for a 64-year-old ex-convict from Texas who pleaded guilty to shooting at security guards at a Greyhound bus terminal last year in downtown Las Vegas.
James Alvin Abney could face decades in state prison at sentencing Tuesday in Clark County District Court.
Abney is 64. He pleaded guilty March 20 to attempted murder and discharging a weapon in the Dec. 5 shooting at the bus station next to the Plaza Hotel & Casino.
No one was injured, and police quickly arrested Abney while people scrambled out of the waiting room. Some people hid in a broom closet until the shooting stopped.
Abney told police he was homeless and wanted to get warm on a cold night, but a security guard told him to leave the bus station.
