Remembering Erik Scott

On the third anniversary of the shooting of Erik Scott by Las Vegas police officers at a northwest valley Costco, family members are in town to attend a vigil in his memory.

Scott, who was 38 at the time, was shot and killed in 2010 at a Summerlin Costco store.

Police, who had been alerted by a Costco employee that Scott was causing a disturbance and had a gun, said when officers arrived and told Scott to surrender, he raised a gun toward them.

Scott was shot by Metro officers William Mosher, Joshua Stark and Thomas Mendiola as he walked out of the store. The shooting was ruled justified, but helped set off an indepth review of officer-involved shootings.
