Attacker Killed In Tattoo Parlor Shootout

posted on July 22, 2016

An employee at a Las Vegas tattoo parlor shot and killed one of two intruders last Monday evening. According to a police report, two men entered the parlor and confronted the employee. The employee recognized them as acquaintances “EZ” and “Fern Dog,” and both of them were armed. They immediately attacked the employee, kicking him multiple times.

The employee told sheriff’s deputies “Fern Dog was so worked up” that he feared for his life. The arrest report says the employee momentarily escaped to the business safe, retrieving his own gun. Returning to the front of the store, the employee heard gun shots, then saw Fern Dog pointing his gun. After the employee heard another shot, he fired four to five rounds at Fern Dog while EZ, later identified as 28-year-old Eric Garcia, fled the store.

Fern Dog, whose name was Fernando Montano, died at the scene, and Garcia was apprehended a short time later.
