Las Vegas Fed Courthouse Shooter Had Violent Criminal Past

nevada1By Allan Lengel

Perhaps it should come as no big shock that Johnny Lee Wicks, the man who killed one court security officer and wounded a deputy Marshal in the Las Vegas federal courthouse on Monday, had a violent criminal past.

The Associated Press is reporting that Wicks, 66, served 12 to 15 years after being convicted of  killing his brother Leo Wicks in Memphis in 1974. He was paroled in 1981.

The AP also reported that he served time after pleading no contest to domestic battery in Sacramento in 1995.

Court records show Wicks, an African American, complained of racial discrimination “and lost a federal lawsuit last year challenging a $286 cut in his $974 monthly Social Security benefits after moving from California to Las Vegas,” the AP reported.
