Officer Involved Shooting on Clover Way

9/2/2015

On Wednesday, September 2, 2015, at 9:34 a.m., law enforcement personnel from the United States Marshal's Fugitive Task Force were attempting to locate a wanted suspect out of California in the 3200 block of Clover Way in Reno.

The suspect was wanted for a felony probation violation and he is related to a homicide investigation out of Oakland, California. His criminal history includes violent felony convictions, including robbery, escape and firearm convictions. As the Fugitive Task Force conducted surveillance in the Clover Way area, they observed the suspect exit an apartment complex. They made contact with the suspect in the open breezeway of this apartment complex.

During the contact with the suspect, a member of the task force fired his weapon, striking the suspect. The officers on scene requested additional assistance from responding agencies as well as requesting medical attention for the suspect. The suspect was transported from the scene to Renown Medical Center, where he is in critical, but stable condition.

Due to the nature of this event, the Washoe County Officer Involved Shooting (OIS) protocol was enacted, with the Reno Police Department as the lead investigating agency. The Washoe County OIS members include investigators from the Washoe County Sheriff's Department, the Sparks Police Department, the Reno Police Department, and the Washoe County District Attorney's Office.
