bus push

LAS VEGAS, NV - Police released surveillance footage Tuesday that appears to show a woman pushing a 74-year-old man off a Las Vegas bus, causing injuries that killed him weeks later, authorities said.

According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the incident occurred March 21 as a 25-year-old woman, Cadesha Bishop, argued with other passengers on the bus. 

"When the bus stopped to allow passengers off, Bishop and the victim got into a verbal argument," police said in a news release Tuesday. "As the victim attempted to exit, Bishop shoved him out of the bus and onto the ground."
