19-year-old man tried to kill Trump at Las Vegas rally, officials say
A federal officer confirmed Monday that the man arrested at a Donald Trump rally in Las Vegas on Saturday had tried to steal an officer's gun to kill the presumptive GOP nominee.
Michael Steven Sandford, 19, was charged with an act of violence on restricted grounds in U.S. District Court in Nevada on Monday.
The complaint, filed by Special Agent Swierkowski, states Sandford drove to the rally from California last Friday, according to the Associated Press.
The suspect had stopped at a Las Vegas gun range for shooting practice before attending the rally at Treasure Island Casino.
At the rally, Sandford had walked up to a Las Vegas police officer and said he wanted to get Trump's autograph. Sandford then grabbed the gun, but was immediately subdued by the officer. No shots were fired.
