4 dead, 1 hurt in police shooting in Henderson

Updated November 3, 2020 - 6:39 pm

Four people are dead and one is wounded following a shooting involving police on Tuesday morning in Henderson, police said.

About 11 a.m., a 911 caller at The Douglas at Stonelake Apartments, 1445 Stonelake Cove Ave., near Stephanie Street and Wigwam Parkway, reported hearing gunfire and seeing “someone with a possible gunshot wound in a nearby doorway,” Henderson Police Department Capt. Jason Kuzik said.

When officers arrived, they found two people suffering from gunshot wounds. Police also found a “possible suspect” in a nearby car, Kuzik said.

“Officers attempted to contact this individual and this contact resulted in an officer-involved shooting,” he said.

Kuzik said five people were “involved in this incident,” and four have died, including the “possible suspect” shot at by police. The condition of the injured person was unclear on Tuesday afternoon.

It was also unclear how many people police shot at, or if the man identified as a “possible suspect” was injured prior to police arrival.

Kuzik said further information was not immediately available, but the department planned to release a statement by Tuesday evening.
