A man trying to sell a ring fired a shot during a robbery attempt outside Boulder Station late Thursday, but no one was injured, Las Vegas police said. A man was meeting with a prospective buyer about 10 p.m. in the parking lot of the casino-hotel, 4111 Boulder Highway, but decided to call off the transaction when several other people showed up, Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Laura Meltzer said. When one of the parties pointed a gun and attempted to rob him, the ring seller told police he pulled out his own gun and fired a shot in self-defense.
