Martin Maycock, 60, was booked Saturday into the Clark County Detention Center on one count of open murder, according to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department records.

Police say Maycock was the one that notified authorities after the shooting just before 7:10 p.m. Friday at Storage at Summlerin on the 7400 block of West Lake Mead Boulevard, east of North Buffalo Drive.

The investigation initiated by the LVMPD Homicide Section indicated the decedent, identified as 25-year-old Jeffrey Paget, was at the storage facility committing a burglary and loading items into a stolen van. During the course of the theft, Maycock fired a handgun at the suspect who was fleeing in the van.

Police say Maycock helped render aid to the victim and cooperated with investigators.

According to the LVMPD police report, Maycock, a manager at the facility for 17 years, recently was issued a concealed weapons permit because there had been some thefts at the location.

Maycock, according to police, spotted Paget trying to get into an RV. Maycock said that Paget was holding a screwdriver when he confronted him, Paget jumped in the van to leave. Maycock says he fired shots at the truck as it was coming toward him.

However, police say that after watching the surveillance video, it appeared that there was no threat.

According to Clark County District Court records, Paget pleaded guilty in April 2014 to two counts of grand larceny and was sentenced to 2 to 5 years in prison.

Maycock is scheduled to make his initial court appearance at 8 a.m. Tuesday at the Regional Justice Center.
