Man allegedly shot by co-worker for not working hard enough

Body shop shooting

A Las Vegas man is being charged with attempted murder after allegedly shooting a co-worker for not working hard enough at an auto shop where they were both employed.

Kevin Mantalvo, 48, was arrested after Metro Police officers responded to a shooting at about 11:30 a.m. Monday at a body shop in the 5100 block of Dean Martin Drive, near Tropicana Avenue.

According to witness statements in the arrest report, Mantalvo, the shop foreman, approached a co-worker and told him he was not working hard enough. The two began to fight inside the shop before Mantalvo exited the shop, retrieved a .22-caliber pistol from his car and began firing at the co-worker, who had exited the shop and was charging Mantalvo.

In the ensuing struggle, Mantalvo was shot once in the chest and the other man was shot four times in the upper body, the arrest report stated. Another co-worker transported the other man to University Medical Center, where he remains in stable condition.

Mantalvo also was transported to UMC and is in stable condition.

Metro arrested Montalvo on charges of attempted murder with a deadly weapon, battery and discharging a gun into an occupied vehicle. He is scheduled to make an appearance in court on Wednesday.
