Benjamin Frazier, 41, appears in court at the Regional Justice Center Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013. Frazier is accused of shooting two security guards and a patron outside the Drai's after-hours club in Bally's on Oct. 21, 2013.

Benjamin Frazier, 42, is charged with one count of murder with the use of a deadly weapon, two counts of attempted murder with the use of a deadly weapon and one count of carrying a concealed firearm or other deadly weapon.

Frazier opened fire early Oct. 21 after a dispute over a $30 cover charge to Drai’s After Hours inside Bally’s, according to a Metro Police arrest report. Police say Frazier shot two security guards before a Drai’s patron noticed the attack and jumped into the fray.

The patron, Kenneth Dion Brown, 40, was fatally shot while wrestling the gunman to the ground, according the police report. The report indicates Brown tried to subdue the gunman after he appeared to point his revolver toward customers.

Frazier is jailed without bond in the Clark County Detention Center.

The Clark County District Attorney’s Office is weighing whether to pursue the death penalty against Frazier.
