LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Clark County coroner's office has identified a man shot and killed by a Las Vegas police officer last week.
The coroner's office says 32-year-old John Paul Hambleton died
Wednesday of a perforating gunshot wound to the chest, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported on its Web site Monday.
Police said Hambleton was suspected in a sexual assault case and
detectives in plain clothes told him at his work that he was going to be arrested. Police say he fled and a detective fired a Taser at him, but that it didn't stop him.
Police said another detective pursued Hambleton and a scuffle between the two ensued. The officer shot Hambleton, who died at the
scene. The detectives were not injured.
