Las Vegas Police Kill Man After Car Chase, Standoff

Las Vegas police shot and killed an armed man after a car chase and standoff early this morning in Henderson.

The slaying was the second in as many days involving Las Vegas-area police.

Authorities say it happened after officers responded to a report of a domestic dispute with gunfire about midnight at a home in northwest Las Vegas.

No one was wounded there.

But police chased the man as he drove across the valley and pulled into a parking lot near Sunset Road and Marks Avenue.

That's where he was surrounded and killed after a SWAT standoff that lasted several hours.

Henderson police killed a man yesterday who they say got out of a car with a handgun during a traffic stop in a drug store parking lot.

A witness in that case tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal the man was not armed.
