Updated April 17, 2024 - 2:00 pm

The man found dead after a multiday standoff that included a police shooting in Henderson has been identified by the Clark County coroner’s office.

Trevor Cooper, 31, was found dead early Sunday in a townhome at 295 Callen Falls Ave. in Henderson after a police standoff that began Friday morning.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the coroner’s office hadn’t yet released any information about the cause and manner of Cooper’s death.

The Henderson Police Department said in a news release Monday that the person later identified as Cooper was holed up inside the home for nearly two days in connection with a violent felony case and was “armed and making suicidal statements, refusing to surrender.”

Police said that SWAT officers went into the home at about 8:45 a.m. Saturday. Cooper shot several rounds and Officer Taylor Young returned fire. Neither Cooper nor any officers were injured, police said.

Young has been placed on paid administrative leave, per policy.

Negotiations continued and Cooper was found dead at about 12:45 a.m. Sunday, police said.
