Officers who shot suicidal man identified

The Las Vegas police officers involved in a shooting of a suicidal 39-year-old man Monday were identified by authorities Thursday.

Officers Todd R. Fasulo Jr., 27, and Ronald D. Thoma, 43, shot Jose Aguilar, 39, after he brandished a shotgun about 9:30 p.m. Monday in the 3200 block of East University Parkway, near Harmon Avenue and Pecos Road.

Aguilar was apparently suicidal and had injected himself with dog insulin, according to his arrest report.

He was brought to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center after the shooting to recover from his injuries.

Fasulo has been employed by the police department since 2008, and Thoma has been employed there since 2000. Both officers have been placed on routine administrative leave pending the outcome of a review board.
