Man accused of shooting daughter’s ex-boyfriend in Laughlin

A man was in serious condition after a domestic-related argument led to a shooting Tuesday night in Laughlin, according to Metro Police.

Anthony Bowdry, 50, shot a 34-year-old man about 11:20 p.m. in a parking lot in the 3500 block of Bay Sands Drive, police allege.

The incident started as an argument between the victim and his ex-girlfriend, who is Bowdry’s daughter, police said. Bowdry showed up during the argument to keep the peace, and the victim eventually left, according to police.

Bowdry then followed the victim to the parking lot and shot him once, police said.

The victim was taken to Arizona Regional Medical Center then transferred to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in Las Vegas in stable condition, police said.

Bowdry was arrested on a count of attempted murder and battery with the use of a deadly weapon resulting in serious bodily injury, according to police.
