Henderson Police Kill Armed Suspect In Domestic Disturbance

HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Police in Henderson say an armed suspect was killed and an officer was wounded at the scene of a domestic disturbance.

Authorities say the incident began Sunday night when they received reports of a family disturbance.

The first officer to arrive came across a man who appeared drunk and was wielding a gun. Lt. Kirk Moore says the suspect was uncooperative with the officer. The display of the firearm led to an exchange of gunfire. The officer was shot and wounded.
