No Major Incidents during Las Vegas Protest Tuesday Night

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Participants in a Las Vegas protest against the death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody dispersed after a demonstration that lasted nearly five hours Tuesday night and was without major reported problems.

That was in contrast to Monday night when a 29-year-old Las Vegas police officer was shot and wounded during a protest outside a hotel and casino and an armed man was fatally shot by law enforcement officers a few miles away during a protest outside a federal courthouse.

A man was arrested in the shooting of Officer Shay Mikalonis, who was reported in critical condition.
