The police officer who shot a carjacking suspect multiple times Friday night has been identified by Las Vegas police as Officer Patrick Sherwood.
Las Vegas police are investigating an officer-involved incident late Friday night in the northwest valley in which a carjacking suspect was shot multiple times.
Three officers involved in a July shooting that killed a man who fired a pellet gun at a policeman should not face criminal prosecution, according to a preliminary finding from the Clark County district attorney.
Juan Carlos Lopez-Aguilar’s gun was a fake. But police say his intention to get shot may have been real.
The officer who fired at a man holding what was later determined to be a “plastic replica firearm” Monday night in the south valley has been identified, the Metropolitan Police Department announced Wednesday night.
The man shot by a Las Vegas police officer in the south valley Monday night had a “replica firearm,” according to Metro Sgt. Jeff Clark.
The man a Metropolitan Police Department officer shot while off-duty in the east valley last week had been previously convicted of stealing vehicles and appeared as if he was going to "attempt to carjack" the officer's car at gunpoint seconds before being shot, Metro said during a press conference Monday.
The Metropolitan Police Department on Thursday identified the officer who fired his weapon during a police shooting in the east valley Tuesday afternoon.
A police officer fired his weapon at a man aiming a handgun at people near the Bellagio fountains Friday night, missing the armed man and grazing two nearby pedestrians, according to a Metropolitan Police Department news release.
