((george trombley, black bird realty & mgmt we we're going to a house, it was in the fall, it was dark from 6pm at night and there were people there that we're stealing the appliances and there was nothing we could really do about it but wait for the police to arrive )) the clark county coroner released the name of the man who died... he is 27 year old victor lamar jones. he died from a single gunshot wound to the back. now, no word from metro on whether any charges will be filed against the property manager who shot jones. reporting live, sharie johnson, 8news now.

5:03 pm
someone is inside their home, should they call police or go handle it on their own? in that situation, metro police says they should call them. in this case... metro is still piecing together all the information on what happened and why. ((paula francis)) > one person is fighting for their life... after they were hit by a car this afternoon. police say it happened just after 3 p-m... near warm springs and spencer. we don't know much about why or how the crash occurred, but we know a person walking was hit by a car, and taken to u-m-c in critical condition. we will get more information once it becomes available./// ((dave courvoisier)) > quest academy's roberson campus isn't closing but the charter school isn't in the clear just yet. the nevada state public charter school authority met this morning. 8 news now reporter brittany edney, joins us now from outside the roberson location. brittany... what did the board decide? dave... i've been following this story all week and it just continues to become more complex.
5:04 pm
to give the charter school more resolution. everyone- from students, parents, faculty and officials at the charter school authority, all agree that quest academy is in a bind-- but there's no easy solution to this. applause errupts as parents realize the roberson campus isn't closing yet-- but the clear. ((john killman, student "if you've ever seen this cartoon where there's this person who is sad and there's this very dark pretty much how i am now. that's how i feel about this, i'm that person just walking around with that raincloud." )) the charter school authority ruled the roberson campus will close and quest's high school program will end ---if--its special use permit is not renewed. also-- the receiver must be sucessful in renegotiations for the property lease. many in the room admitted it's a long shot... but parents say they are going to keep fighting (( trudy killman, mother "us parents are going to come together. we will be contacting our concilman, we will be addressing
5:05 pm
to find that unicorn.")) officials say quest academy is two point four millon dollars in debt. it's also stuck in a long-term lease that uses 44-percent of their entire campus revenue. and even if the doors close, quest would still be legally obligated to continue paying due to the agreement. ((quest student "it doesn't seem like the best choice at all to close it because you're going to be displacing a lot of people, i think it's in the best interest of the students and the staff to keep the vocation open.) live the other ruling of today is that all quest academy parents are to be notified of what's going on. next-- it's going to be up to city council... they're scheduled to decide in july if the special use permit will be renewed. reporting live, brittany edney,

nevada is now.")) > ((dave courvoisier)) > former heavyweight boxing champion mike tyson is back in las vegas, returning next week to the mgm to perform his one-man show, the undisputed truth. ((paula francis)) tyson admits he was out of control during the years when he ruled boxing. in media interviews granted yesterday to promote his show, tyson spoke candidly about his rise and fall. ((dave courvoisier))
5:12 pm
down with the former champ, and not for the first time. ((george knapp)) four years ago, when "undisputed truth" was still being written and rehearsed, mike tyson allowed us a behind the scenes look at the creative process. having followed his career closely and being present for many of his biggest fights, it was stunning to see this evolution of iron mike. his life is shakespearean, with more peaks and valleys than most continents. and the public that once saw him as a monster now gets the chance for a second look. (( )) mike tyson/star of "undisputed truth": it's a roller coast ride, a roller coaster ride. the description is apt, both for mike tyson's life and his one man show. four years ago, las vegas producer adam steck collaborated with tyson's wife kiki. they put together a team, sequestered tyson in a suite at the mgm, and crossed their fingers. adam steck/ ceo spi entertainment: my stomach was in knots, can he deliver? then we went to see him rehease, and i was like, man he's gonna blow people's minds
5:13 pm
the same intensity that made him the youngest heavyweight champion in history. it forced him to confront his tumultuous past, and it was clear when we spoke to him back then that a transformation was underway. mike tyson/2012 interview: every now and then i see film of me when i was a crazy guy. f... you. suck my this and that and filth filth filth, and i'm looking and sometimes i don't even know that's me. las vegas had been the scene of his greatest triumphs, and also the site of his destruction. he was king of the jungle, a predator surrounded by hyenas who fed his addictions to sex, drugs, and money. he lost it all, his belts, his marriage, hundreds of millions of dollars, and his freedom, out of that crucible, a humble mike tyson emerged. george knapp: you're a confident guy. did you know the show would go this well? mike tyson: no no, i'm not a confident guy. i'm not a confident guy, but i get the job done. i found out that the greatest fighters, the greatest fighters,
5:14 pm
make it happen. they've got big egos. though, you know what i mean, and that weird combination balances it out. after hitting rock bottom, tyson began the long climb back up, aided by his conversion to islam. and the steadying influence of his wife. he showed an unexpected flair for comedy.... the one man show was a hit in las vegas, then broadway, then toured the world. famed director spike lee made it into a film. he praised tyson's courage as an actor for confronting the most embarrassing parts of his life. audiences respond to that. but iron mike refuses let himself off the hook. i've gotten comfortable with being who i am in life. i'm confortable with being uncomfortable, you know, who we are. listen, um, if we truly are christians and muslims and we truly believe in god, why should we care about what anyone says about us? is the success of the
5:15 pm
i've only changed my way of living. is he comfortable being loved by his public? love is tricky. love is tricky. i like being respected more because now, i have self respect. so i understand what it is to be respected. undisputed truth could probably have a long run at the mgm but the problem is tyson's time. he's suddenly a hot property with a cartoon series on tv, movie offers, tens of millions of fans in china....he remains a magnet for weirdness, which provides more material for his show. example, tyson gave an interview to this guy then learned later he was a serial killer. while on tour in australia, he posed for a photo with an isis executioner. i said how did this guy get next to me. how did people let this guy get next to me. what kind of security do i have?
5:16 pm
for the show. i said, man, he can't be hanging out. these are terrorists, they cant be hanging out partying. tyson has taken some grief from fellow muslims because he has openly endorsed donald trump, who financed some of tyson's biggest fights in the 80's. thanks you mr. trump. yeah thank you mr. trump gk: you remember that spot? mike tyson yeah gknapp: he took you to atlantic city? tyson: now he's going to take me away and take me to the white house with him baby. gknapp: make you secretary of defense? tyson: i don't want to be none of that. it's treasury treasury. (laughs) ((george knapp)) unlike the last time we interviewed the former champ, there was a line of other media waiting to speak with him this time, and tyson is clearly enjoying himself, he was loose and joking, just a different guy altogether from the angry man he used to be. i did slip a ufo question into the conversation but we will save that for another time. undisputed truth opens at the mgm march 3rd for a limited

((chris christie/govern or of new jersey: i've gotten the know all the people on that stage. and there is no one who is better prepared to provide america with the strong leadership that it needs, both at home and around the world, than donald trump. )) ((dave courvoisier)) the republican candidates faced off in a debate last night in houston.. and today marco rubio and donald trump took turns making fun of each other at rallies throughout the state. ted cruz didn't stick around... he took off to nashville but said he plant to go back home through super tuesday./// ((paula francis)) > 8 news now is your local election headquarters...

"full-figured" model ashley graham is featured on this month's issue, and let's just say tiegs isn't embracing the cover girl's curves. in an interview with e, tiegs said she doesn't like that the magazine is glamorizing graham and fuller-figured woman because she believes their bodies are unhealthy. people took to twitter slamming tiegs for body- shaming and being a plain old "hater." and if you're planning on staying

((paula francis)) > one little pony has a lot of explaining to do... (("she "gotted" a time out because she was being a bad pony," )) ((paula francis)) did you notice something special about little juliette there.... she looks like a unicorn.. in fact she helps her family make a living by posing as a unicorn in photographs. but during her shoot yesterday... she made a break for it: (( "the calls were coming in as a unicorn running around out there on the roadway."))
