“The res gestae embraces not only the actual facts of the transaction and the circumstances surrounding it, but the matters immediately antecedent to and having a direct causal connection with it, as well as acts immediately following it and so closely connected with it as to form in reality a part of the occurrence.” J. McKnight, State v. Fouquette, 221 P.2d 404, 416-417 (Nev. 1950).
