Henderson Police are investigating a barricaded situation that turned into a deadly officer-involved shooting at the Hilton Gardens Inn near the Sunset Station Casino Saturday morning.
According to police, the call came out at 9:15 a.m. with a male suspect refusing to come out of the room and firing gunshots. The suspect was struck by gunfire from authorities and later transported to Sunrise Trauma where he later died.
“In this particular incidence, it was quite obvious that the suspect was not only threatening himself but the area businesses, shooting outside his hotel room window,” Henderson PD PIO Kathleen Richards said.
The main cross-streets are West Warm Springs and North Stephanie Street as SWAT units are still investigating the incident.
This is the 1st officer-involved shooting in Henderson's jurisdiction this year.
