On Sunday morning while he was on vacation in Las Vegas, Driscoll was killed on the Las Vegas Strip after being punched by 33-year-old Brandon Leath, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, citing a police report.
Police believe Leath had provoked Driscoll while he walked across the Strip with a woman. Eventually, the pair got into a fight that turned physical.
Driscoll was knocked unconscious and taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Las Vegas Metropolitan police reportedly watched the altercation unfold on real-time crime cameras and were able to take Leath into custody on a murder charge shortly afterward, KTNV reports.
He was a Connecticut State Police officer for 22 years. He was retired in 2009.
“Tom was a great guy. I have known him since college,” friend Peter Kennedy told WGGB of his longtime friend Thomas Driscoll. “We went to Holyoke Community College, then Westfield State, and I got on the state police class before he did, and we remained friends all during that time and during our entire career.”
