Deputies Identify Man Killed in Officer-Involved Shooting

Posted: Updated:

The Washoe County Sheriff's Office has identified the man killed in an officer-involved shooting last week in Reno.

The sheriff's office says officers tried to negotiate with 27-year-old Kenneth Stafford when they found him on Belcrest Circle Thursday afternoon.

He was reportedly suicidal and armed.

During negotiations, both Reno and sparks Police officers fired on Stafford. He later died at the hospital.

The officers involved are on routine administrative leave.
