the newsroom with his story. vince? christine....adam.... when i first spoke with police on friday.. just hours after alonso perez escaped.... police described him as armed and dangerous due to his violent history.... today i spoke with a man who believes he saw that violent history first hand.... and it almost cost him his life.... "just pop, pop, pop like what your general red fire cracker would sound like, is what it sounded like from in here." but from outside video surveillance tells a di story. "i thought it was all fake, to be honest with you til it was all over." scott lewis believes the man you see on this apartment security video is alonso perez. you can see the man pulling a gun in broad daylight and firing nine shots at the manager's office in late july. lewis tells me the man previously lived here at the peterson motel and apartments for two weeks. under what police confirmed to lewis was a false name. "he said he had been doing some painting and he gave me some paint supplies and plastic and tape as

(nats him explaing what happened) lewis did file a police report.. and fox 5 did find a case matching the description of fox 5 did find a description of perez and an incident on july 25th. but we have been unable to confirm this with police. when lewis saw reports of a suspect escape police custody he says he knew it was the same man who rented an apartment from him. "just blown away, it was amazing to me that the same guy on the news is the same one that opened shots at the office." "i though that he would have left, we figured he packed up and left the state, but obviously he is still right here in our own neighborhood." because of his experience...lewis

the most dangerous person on the street. and hopes by telling his story he will get perez back behind bars. "right now he has no concern for life, obviously for anyone else or himself." "now knowing he actually killed a man at a local mcdonalds and broke free from handcuffs, he's probably not going to go without a fight." now christine.. adam.. due to the labor day holiday we have been unable to verify the man in the video is the same man wanted for murder. but the apartment manager is confident the two are one in the same... in the newsroom.. i'm vince sapienza.. fox5...news.. local...las vegas..... police say if you
