Las Vegas morning update for Friday, September 22nd — VIDEO

Here are your Friday morning headlines:

1. A road-rage incident in the northwest valley last night left one man dead. Two men were driving pickup trucks and confronted each other after one honked his horn at the other who was driving slow and braking often. One man told police he felt threatened, and fired one shot at the other. The shot struck the man in the head, and he died on scene.

2. City of Las Vegas officials are investigating allegations that a firefighter violated department rules by having sex at a fire station, mere months after claims of widespread sexual misconduct by personnel. A document obtained by the Review-Journal says some supervisors tried to cover up the rendezvous by intimidating a whistleblower. The investigation comes amid inquiries from the Review-Journal about an Aug. 21 incident at Fire Station 9 in northwest Las Vegas.

3. A judge dismissed indictment charges against a Las Vegas attorney who was indicted under charges of providing a cell phone to inmates. Alexis Plunkett broke down in tears Thursday after all 14-counts of her indictment were dismissed. Plunkett has previously stated that she was in a relationship with one of the inmates, and used the cellphone to make calls regarding bail, which she thought she was allowed to do.
