Police have identified the off-duty officer shot during a confrontation Wednesday night in the northwest valley as a 33-year-old detective.
Austin Bone has been with the Metropolitan Police Department for nearly 10 years and is part of the Tourist Safety Division of the Convention Center Area Command.
Bone was hospitalized but expected to make a full recovery after an exchange of gunfire that injured two others around 11:30 p.m. at Sunking Street and Dole Avenue, near North Decatur Boulevard. Bone had approached a group that was surrounding one person, and someone in that group pointed a weapon at Bone.
As the officer fell to the ground, three people, including the two injured, ran to a vehicle and sped off but were soon taken into custody near Fourth Street and Ogden Avenue in downtown Las Vegas, the Review Journal previously reported.
The three men arrested were identified by court and jail records Friday as Johnathan Kentral Pennington, 26; Markquwon Allen, 25; and Devan Allen, 27. Each faces a charge of attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, robbery with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery, battery with a deadly weapon resulting in substantial bodily harm and conspiracy to commit battery.
Bone has been placed on administrative leave pending a department review of the shooting.
