State Police involved in shooting in Las Vegas

........................................................................................................................................................................................

State Police were involved in an officer-involved shooting in Las Vegas today, a State Police sergeant confirmed Thursday afternoon.

He couldn’t provide any more details, including whether the suspect was shot or killed. Another State Police spokesman would only say that an officer-involved shooting had occurred but would not say that it involved State Police.

This is the department’s second officer-involved shooting in less than a week. On Saturday, three State Police officers shot a man in Los Lunas after they said he fired dozens of rounds inside his home. That man is listed in stable condition.

 

The spokesman said more information would be provided when it is available. Keep with ABQJournal.com for updates.
