Henderson Man Sentenced To Over 6 Years In Prison For Shooting At Las Vegas Boat Harbor Marina Security Guards

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - A man who fired multiple shots at security guards at the Las Vegas Boat Harbor Marina was sentenced today to 81 months in prison, announced U.S. Attorney Dayle Elieson for the District of Nevada and Chief Ranger Adam Kelsey of Lake Mead National Recreational Area.

Jamie Joe Dulus, 29, of Henderson, Nevada, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Jennifer A. Dorsey. In January, Dulus pleaded guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon and use of a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.

On August 10, 2017, as the bar was closing at the Lake Mead National Park Las Vegas Boat Harbor, two security guards asked Dulus to leave the area because he was acting belligerent. Dulus argued with the guards as he walked along the walkway leading to the parking lot. The guards followed him to ensure he left the area. Dulus then set his beer bottle on the ground, lifted his shirt, and grabbed a .25 caliber Raven handgun from his waistband. Dulus aimed and fired once at each security guard, and then started running towards the guards firing one more shot. When Dulus reached the two guards, he pressed the barrel of the handgun to one guard's forehead. The second guard was able to pull Dulus's hand away as another shot was fired. The guards were able to wrestle Dulus to the ground, remove the gun from his hand, and hold him until National Park Service Rangers arrived on scene. No one was injured during the incident.

The case was investigated by the National Park Service and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Elham Roohani.
