Death – Suspect killed, 2 Las Vegas police officers wounded in gunfight

Death – Obituary

One person was fatally shot and two Las Vegas police officers were wounded early Monday when gunfire erupted as they served a search warrant in a homicide case.

Police Capt. Nicholas Farese said a tactical unit was serving the warrant at approximately 5 a.m. at a residence on the 3000 block of South Nellis Boulevard, near Vegas Valley Drive, when gunshots rang out.

“There was an exchange of gunfire between the suspect and officers,” Farese said.

The officers shot and killed the suspect during the exchange of gunfire, he said.

Two officers were transported to University Medical Center with gunshot wounds. Farese described both as being in “stable” condition and said they were expected to survive.

It was not immediately known what homicide case the officers were investigating at the time of the shooting, but Farese said it occurred in November. Police also did not disclose the exact location of the shooting, but officers were observed gathering behind crime scene tape at The Boulevard apartment complex, across the street from a post office and gas station.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
