74-year-old man dies after shoved off bus in ‘disturbing’ video

When the bus stopped to let people off, Bishop and the victim, 74-year-old Serge Fournier, began to argue, according to KSNV.

Witnesses say Fournier had been asking Bishop to be nicer to the passengers before being pushed out the doors and onto the ground.

Police attended the scene, where the man refused help but later checked himself into hospital. On May 3, police were notified that the man had died from his injuries.

The Las Vegas Sun reported Bishop was identified thanks to a unique emblem on her jacket and a Spider-Man backpack carried by her son, who was on the bus with her.

The incident occurred just before 5 p.m. on a Thursday evening in March, as the bus moved through downtown Las Vegas, according to a warrant issued for Bishop.

The Clark County Coroner's Office ruled Fournier's death a homicide after an autopsy showed he died from complications ti blunt-force torso injuries.

Officers believe Bishop had been argumentative with people on the bus.

Taylor said of Bishop, "No matter what his age, she should not have done that".

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

Police found and arrested Bishop three days later.

Bishop remains in the Clark County Detention Center.

She's facing a charge of open murder on an elderly-vulnerable person. The terms of the plea included that she had to complete community service, undergo "impulse control counseling" and to remain out of trouble. Records show she pleaded guilty more than a year later.
