    The killings took place at night near a dusty, desolate Las Vegas corridor.

    On Jan. 3, a homeless man curled up in a blanket to protect himself from the frigid 44-degree temperature, was struck several times in the head as he slept near an intersection not far from the roar of the Spaghetti Bowl, a name locals use to describe a freeway interchange on the city's north end.

    The autopsy showed he was bludgeoned with a blunt object, perhaps a hammer.

    A month later, a tragedy unfolded at the same intersection — this time on the opposite corner.



    On Feb. 3, another homeless man, also nestled under a blanket to stave off the winter cold, was beaten to death as he slept in an open area near bushes.

    Again, it appeared the weapon was a hammer.

    The similarities between the cases prompted police to set a trap: a mannequin, wrapped in blankets like a sleeping homeless man with his head covered, was placed where the first man was killed.

    The scene that quickly ensued — and captured on police surveillance video — led to the arrest of 30-year-old Shane Schindler, who on Tuesday was charged with attempted murder.

    At around 3 a.m. on Feb. 22, Schindler, wearing a dark hoodie, walked to the intersection carrying a Little Caesars plastic bag, according to a police report. He spotted the mannequin covered heavily in blankets. He then hovered in the area for several minutes, and appeared to be looking around for any vehicle or pedestrian traffic.

    Police say the video captured the following: Schindler approached the mannequin, pulled his hood up over his head to conceal his face and slowly pulled out of the bag a 4-pound engineer's hammer. Using both hands, he raised the hammer and swung it down on the mannequin's head several times.

    Police, who were monitoring the surveillance footage, quickly flooded the scene and arrested Schindler.

    Shane Schindler was later sentenced to 8 years in prison.

    Glad they caught the a-hole. Where’s the police brutality when you really need it?

    This is so sad and disheartening. This is the dangers we all face when sleeping outside. Some cities I have traveled through I had to sleep with one eye open and some I haven't.

    This absolutely disgust me. I am glad you shared this video, it is a reminder as to why it is important to find areas to hide while sleeping.

    Only a coward would commit such sick sadistic acts such as this.

    Please use caution everyone when sleeping.

    Some of us don't have the luxury of sleeping in a SUV nor do some us want to. SUV's would not be suitable pertaining to how some of us travel. Due to the miss spelling of some of your words I am having a hard time responding to some of your statements.

    We shouldn't have to hide while sleeping however we do not live in a perfect world and as some of us know and have experienced. The streets offer many different dangerous situations and environments.

    It is always wise to expect the unexpected. A little preparation and common sense is a must for survival on the streets.

    It's our own risk to sleep outside of nowhere

    This is why you climb or hide for sleep.

    It sounds like they couldn't proove that he killed the previous people and only charged him with attempted murder.

    My brother got 10 years for possession or transportation (he had it on his person while driving) of meth. The nation's laws are so biased and jacked up, but at least this guy is off the streets and not murdering anyone for a while. Let's all hope he scratches that itch in prison and has to serve even more time.
