Disturbing video shows elderly man pushed off bus, dies from injuries

VIDEO: Police release footage of elderly man being shoved off city bus; passenger now facing murder charge, police say

Witnesses say Bishop pushed the man out of the bus door after getting into an argument with the victim and other passengers.

According to Fox News, Bishop, who was reportedly yelling and swearing at others on the bus, allegedly pushed Fournier after he asked her to be nicer to other passengers.

The Las Vegas Sun reported that Bishop was identified in part by a "Love" emblem on her jacket and her son's distinctive Spider-Man backpack.

He starts to step off the bus when the woman quickly shoves him from behind, slamming the 74-year-old onto the sidewalk, where Fournier lies motionless sprawled atop his cart, the video shows.

The elderly man initially refused medical treatment but went to the hospital later that day.

Online records also show that Bishop had been arrested on battery charges twice before.

Friend Trevor Taylor told KSNV-TV that Fournier spent the final months of his life in the hospital. The coroner ruled his death as delayed complications from blunt force trauma, according to reports.

Of Fournier, Taylor told the station he'll "always remember him being a wonderful person".

Police said they were notified of the man's death on May 3. Detectives managed to identify Bishop through bus surveillance video and arrested her this week.

Bishop was transported to the Clark County Detention Center where she faces a charge for open murder on an elderly-vulnerable person.

A judge has ordered Bishop be held on $100,000 bail pending a preliminary hearing of evidence on May 21.

A public defender who represented Bishop in court May 7 didn't immediately respond Wednesday to messages.
