Police video shows moments after Summerlin law office shooting

Updated May 9, 2024 - 10:06 pm

Metropolitan Police Department body-camera video released Thursday shows how police and firefighters went office to office to get people out of the building after the April 8 triple fatal shooting in a Summerlin law office.

Officers were diverted from a central valley call and sped down West Charleston Boulevard to the shooting scene at the Prince Law Group in Suite 560 of the City National Bank building. They were soon joined by more than a dozen Metro units as well as Clark County firefighters and a Metro helicopter.

The video from one body-worn camera was released. It shows the officers entering the fifth-floor conference room where the shootings occurred but the frames were heavily blacked out so as not to show any of the scene.

The rest of the video shows officers clearing offices to get people to safety.

Attorney Dennis Prince and his wife, Ashley Prince, were shot by attorney Joseph Houston at about 10 a.m. in a conference room during a deposition in a tense Family Court battle involving Houston’s son, Dylan Houston, the father of two children with Ashley Prince, who was Houston’s ex-wife, according to police.

Police say Houston pulled out a handgun just a few minutes into the deposition and killed the Princes before turning the gun on himself.
