Officer Involved Shootings
Las Vegas police officers involved in the New Year’s Eve shooting of an unarmed man did not attempt to use non-lethal force to subdue him before they opened fire, according to a public fact-finding review held Monday.
A public fact-finding review revealed on Tuesday that high levels of drugs, including methamphetamine, were found in Bryan Bauer’s system after he was fatally shot by a Henderson police officer on July 4.
The officer-involved shooting happened about 5:45 a.m. Thursday, after police were called to the 2140 Las Vegas Blvd. North casino for reports of the guard savagely beating and “possibly killing” another employee.
Two employees of the Silver Nugget casino in North Las Vegas died violently Thursday morning. One of them, 64, was the victim of a homicide. The other, 30, was the suspect, shot by a North Las Vegas police officer.
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.
