According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, an officer has passed away following an early-morning shooting on Thursday near UNLV. Sheriff Joe Lombardo stated at a news conference on Thursday that dispatch received a call about a domestic disturbance close to the 800 block of East Flamingo Road at around one in the morning.

In the vicinity of University Center and Flamingo Road, responding officers made contact with the suspect vehicle, according to Sheriff Lombardo. Police say that the suspect, 24-year-old Tyson Hampton, fired at them while carrying a handgun. According to Lombardo, both responding officers fired their weapons. According to Lombardo, one officer was struck and critically injured, as well as a bystander. Both were taken to neighborhood hospitals.

After escaping, Hampton was apprehended near Eastern and Desert Inn with the aid of a K-9 unit, according to the authorities.
