Report: Surveillance shows suspect was fleeing area when shot by storage facility manager

The storage facility where an alleged thief was shot and killed Friday night had been hit by thieves over the past several months, according to an arrest report released Monday.

Metro Police said Martin Maycock called 9-1-1 dispatch to report that he had shot an unknown man who was attempting to steal items from the storage facility he managed. Maycock said he was conducting a routine perimeter check at the "Storage at Summerlin" when everything unfolded.

The facility is located at 7441 W. Lake Mead Boulevard. The man shot and killed has been identified as Jeffrey Paget.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found Paget seated in the driver's seat of an unregistered white cargo van. Paget was suffering from a gunshot wound to the left side of his chest. Paget was taken to UMC where he died from his injuries.

According to the report, Maycock who had recently obtained a Concealed Weapon Permit, was walking toward his vehicle when he heard a loud bang. When Maycock went to check it out, he said he noticed a man, later identified as Paget, trying to break into a motorhome, police said.

The report said, Maycock asked Paget what he was doing, and noticed he had a screwdriver in his hand. Paget told Maycock it was his friend's motorhome and told him to mind his own business before jumping back into the van, but Maycock pulled out his gun and fired a shot in his direction.

According to the report, when Maycock told police Paget put the van in drive and drove toward him, so he fired a second shot. Maycock told officers he was scared, but after Metro Police reviewed surveillance video, it showed that Paget was trying to flee the area and the position in which Maycock was standing was not in the path of the fleeing vehicle.

Maycock was placed under arrest and taken to the Clark County Detention Center where he was booked on a charge of murder with use of a deadly weapon.
