The Henderson Police Department has identified a man who was injured in a shootout with police officers during a traffic stop Thursday.
Daniel Thornburg, 42, faces charges of attempted murder of a protected person and possession of a stolen firearm, as well as a weapons charge for allegedly being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Thornburg remained hospitalized Friday in critical but stable condition, according to the department.
Police have said that the shooting took place on the 300 block of Cannes Street, near Warm Springs Road and Major Avenue, shortly after officers stopped a man and a woman on a blue Suzuki motorcycle with an “altered” license plate.
Officers later determined the motorcycle had been reported stolen in Boulder City.
During the stop, police said, the two on the motorcycle pointed to Thornburg, who was standing outside a home on Cannes Street, and identified him as the bike owner.
When officers approached Thornburg, police said Thursday night, the man shot at them, prompting officers to return fire.
Additional details about what led up to the shooting have not been released.
A witness told the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Thursday that he had heard up to 40 gunshots.
The officers who fired their weapons have been placed on paid leave pending the outcome of the investigation into their use of force. They will be identified within 48 hours of the shooting, per department policy.
In March, Thornburg pleaded guilty to a felony charge of possession of a stolen vehicle, District Court records show. He was sentenced to probation on Nov. 18.
Further information about the case, which stemmed from a 2016 charge in District Court, was not immediately available.
In July 2008 he also pleaded guilty to a felony charge of being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm, court records show. His sentence was modified to a maximum of 60 days due to time served.
