On Sunday morning while on vacation in Las Vegas, Driscoll was gunned down on the Las Vegas Strip after being beaten by Brandon Leath, 33, citing a police report, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal. Police believe Leath mocked Driscoll while crossing the Strip with a woman. Eventually, the couple had a fight that turned out to be physical.
Driscoll was passed unconscious and taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police reportedly witnessed the clashes in the crime chambers in real time and was quick to arrest Leath for murder, reports KTNV.
Driscoll was a Connecticut State Police Officer for 22 years. He retired in 2009.
Information from Leath’s lawyer was not available on Wednesday.
