Neighbor told police she witnessed man shoot his grandmother

LAS VEGAS - A neighbor who tried to help 86-year-old Marilyn Guidry told police she witnessed the woman get shot in the head by her grandson, according to the arrest report.

The deadly shooting and police barricade happened on Tuesday, Oct. 4 on Henniker Way in a Summerlin neighborhood.

The neighbor first spotted the elderly woman as she came out of her home followed by her 45-year-old grandson, Bradley Christian Francis. 

According to the report, the neighbor saw Francis push the woman to the ground before walking back into the home he shared with his grandmother.

The elderly woman, whose face was bloodied, told the neighbor that Francis was trying to kill her. The neighbor left to retrieve her gun, the report said.

As she returned outside, she told police, she saw Francis stand over Guidry and shoot her once in the head. The neighbor said she pointed her weapon at Francis and he turned away and walked back into his home.

According to the report, when officers arrived at the home, Francis' son came outside the house and told police that his father had given him a medication and he had fallen asleep. He said, he awoke when he heard what he thought were firecrackers and his grandmother saying. "Get off me, get off me." He said, he looked out the window and saw his great-grandmother laying in the street and couldn't find his father.

Police said Bradley Francis was in the home's backyard and there was a standoff that lasted to 7:45 p.m. when he was taken into custody. Francis said he would talk to police after he had an attorney and received medical help because he was in danger of hurting himself.

Francis appeared in court Friday morning. His preliminary hearing is set for Dec. 6.
