VIDEO: Former Shelter Dog Joins Va. Police K-9 Unit

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officers were responding around 6:10 p.m. Saturday to a report of a robbery and battery with a deadly weapon incident near Charleston Boulevard and Mojave Road when a man, who was not involved in the investigation, came out of his apartment.

Police reported that he initially engaged officers in conversation before going back into his apartment. After the suspect got a handgun and shot the officer just below his eye, officers returned fire and struck the suspect, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

The wounded officer was treated at UMC Trauma where he was treated and released, KTNV TV reports.

The preliminary investigation indicates the suspect was armed with a pellet-type handgun. The suspect's identity has not yet been released.

Yes and I would bet that the pellet gun looked just like the real mccoy no matter what brand it may have been. Never the less it shot pellets which can be just as lethal. Luckily he hit the officer below the eye or he probably would have been blinded for life. I call this a justified shoot.

All sorts of nutjobs out there. Glad this asshole was taken out. Wish the officer a speedy recovery.

Sound like someone with some kind of mental issue. It happens, hard to guess if a person has all his falsity with out having the training required. To bad our health system is so difunctional that most people never really get mental health and one day just snap. Oh well welcome to funhouse. Glad the officer survived the incident, bad that he will now be paranoid about most people.

This "Suicide by Cop" thing is happening all too frequently. This unfortunate loser obviously came outside to asses the officers ability to off him before getting his "realistic toy pistol" and actually trying to damage the officer. It's not our job to end your depression! Why mess with other people's lives on your way out. I have zero sympathy for people like this. They ruin others (officer's) lives.
