Reno Police: Suspect Dead in Officer-Involved Shooting, Second Suspect Located

Posted: Updated:
Reno Police tell Channel 2 News one suspect in Wednesday morning's officer-involved shooting has died of his injuries, while a second suspect was located near Sutro and 9th Streets.

The shooting happened around 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday on Sutro Street near 9th Street.

Duncan Elementary and Traner Middle Schools were temporarily placed on lockdown, as well as nearby Coral Academy of Science. Portions of 9th Street were also closed, but they have since reopened.

"Any time someone is brazen enough to take a firearm and positively point it at a police officer, obviously that's a risk to public safety," Officer Tim Broadway, Reno Police Department said.

Reno Police tell us a multi-agency task force made a traffic stop on a suspect in an undisclosed case and that's when the suspect got out of the vehicle and drew his weapon. At this time, police won't confirm if he shot at officers, but they say he was shot and killed.

"We know a gun was involved and that it was pointed towards the officers," Broadway said.

University of Nevada police say the second unidentified suspect was located near Sutro and 9th Streets.
