Las Vegas police have identified the officer who shot and killed a man at a south valley convenience store Saturday evening.
The Metropolitan Police Department identified the officer as 33-year-old David Nesheiwat. He has been with the department since July 2006.
Nesheiwat was placed on paid administrative leave after he fired four shots at a man who was holding a woman and pointing a gun at her. The woman was also shot, and police said it was unclear whether the man fired his weapon.
Saturday’s shooting was the 21st by Metro this year. The department investigated 10 police shootings last year.
