Four Las Vegas police officers involved in Monday’s fatal shooting of disabled war veteran Stanley Gibson were named by the Metropolitan Police Department on Wednesday.
They include officer Jesus Arevalo, who was identified in Wednesday’s Review-Journal, officer Malik Grego-Smith, Sgt. Michael Hnatuick and Lt. David Dockendorf.
Arevalo, 34, has been employed with the department since February 2002. Grego-Smith, 31, has been with the department since August 2008. Hnatuick, 45, is a 23-year veteran employed with the department since September 1988. Dockendorf, 40, has been with the department since July 1998.
Arevalo, Grego-Smith and Hnatuick are assigned to the Patrol Division, Northwest Area Command. Dockendorf is assigned to the Patrol Division, Bolden Area Command.
Arevalo shot Stanley Gibson, 43, early Monday after a 30-minute standoff with police in a northwest valley apartment parking lot.
Sources said Arevalo fired about seven shots from his rifle into the rear passenger window of Gibson’s car, which was pinned against several patrol cars and not moving.
Gibson, a Gulf War veteran who had been off his medications, was delusional and confused in the hours before the shooting.
Gibson was unarmed and appeared not to be a threat, multiple witnesses said.
