Las Vegas Police Officer Shot In Ambush

NEVADA — According to a statement by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Police responded to an Officer-Involved shooting in the area of Tropicana and Nellis Sunday.

An officer was struck by gunfire, police confirmed. The Officer is expected to survive, suffered gunshot wound to the hand. A suspect is in custody.

Police in Vegas had recently started pairing Officers together due to the ongoing ‘anti-police’ movement.

The two Officers were in a marked patrol car and were headed to the ’99 Cents Store’ to investigate a disturbance call when they stopped at a traffic signal.

That’s when the suspect approached, unprovoked, and opened fire on the Officers.

At least three rounds were fired at the officers “ambush-style,” police said.

We are awaiting a press conference.

According to statistics collected by the FBI, 76 law enforcement officers were killed in line-of-duty incidents in 2013. Of these, 27 law enforcement officers died as a result of felonious acts, and 49 officers died in accidents. In addition, 49,851 officers were victims of line-of-duty assaults.
