Another Day Another Cop Ambush

The officers were responding to a disturbance call at a 99 Cent Only Store, when the gunman approached the vehicle and fired three shots. He wounded one officer and then took off on foot.

Two officers were inside a patrol vehicle that was responding to a disturbance call at a nearby 99-Cent Only Store, McMahill said.

Metro police Sgt. John Sheahan elaborated the shooter walked up to the patrol vehicle that was stopped in the left turn lane of northbound Nellis at the time.

One shot struck the window of the vehicle followed by two more shots. The shots resulted in the officer sitting in the passenger seat being wounded in the hand, according to McMahill.

The investigation is still underway, and more should be known soon. The wounded officer was taken to a hospital to treat his non-life threatening injuries. With more cases like this popping up all over the country, it goes to show you that something needs to be done before it escalates further.
