Every day in the U.S. about 89 people are shot dead in one way or another. At GunMemorial.org we try to post pages for all of these people even though the circumstances of their deaths can be drastically different.

Lanard Wilson, age 36

Fatally shot on April 12, 2016 in Henderson, Nevada.

Wilson was among three men who kidnapped a jewelry store employee in an attempt to gain access to the store. While being held in a car, the store employee freed himself from his restraints and he fired at the kidnappers with his concealed firearm. Two men were killed, including Wilson, who was driving the car. He was known by friends as "Nardy."
