*****UPDATE***** Homicide Investigation

11/28/2016

On November 24, 2016 at approximately 1805 hours, the drivers of two separate vehicles became involved in a dispute while in the parking lot of Walmart, located at 2425 E. 2nd Street. Once the vehicles stopped near the exit onto 2nd Street, the dispute turned physical with both parties being armed with weapons. As a result, a 33 year old man was shot and died at the scene. At the time of this release all parties have been located as well as the vehicles and firearm involved in the shooting. No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.  

****UPDATE**** 

Over the last several days, Reno Police Robbery Homicide Detectives have been interviewing those involved in the incident which had occurred in the Wal Mart parking lot on Thursday November 24, 2016.  After speaking with the victim and witnesses, the shooting occurred after the victim unintentionally cut-off 33 year old Mathew McGraw in the parking lot.  When both vehicles stopped in the parking lot, McGraw exited his vehicle with a metal baton and began to beat on the victim’s vehicle.  McGraw continued to strike the victims vehicle eventually breaking the driver’s side window and the victim reported being hit in the face.  In response to McGraw’s actions, the victim fired his gun several times from inside his vehicle striking McGraw who was pronounced deceased on scene.   The victim told investigators he was still in fear for his life and left the scene.  A short time later he met with Detectives and is being cooperative with the investigation.    

The investigation is still ongoing and we do not anticipate charges being filed at this time. 

Anyone having information relating to this case should contact the Reno Police Department at 334-2115, Secret Witness at 322-4900, www.secretwitness.com, or text the tip to 847411 (TIP 411) keyword – SW

Cyber Monday Safety Tips from the Reno Police Department

11/27/2016

Shopping for holiday gifts has become much easier with the one stop shopping that the internet provides, and it alleviates the stresses of going to the crowded malls.  Citizens looking for the Cyber Monday specials can easily access on-line stores from home or even their smart phones.  As on-line shopping has become easier and more appealing to consumers, the Reno Police Department would like to remind those who order gifts on line of some basic safety tips in hopes their holiday season won’t be spoiled by criminals. 

  • Use a single credit card… By using a single credit card, it is easier to cancel one card than several if your card is compromised by on-line purchases.
  • Consider buying a prepaid card… If you want to limit your budget or control your spending, purchasing a prepaid credit card will not only help you stay on budget but also limit the amount of money criminals can get if you are victimized.
  • Know what you are buying…  Confirm all on-line purchases.  Print off your receipts to make exchanges, refunds, and for any disputes of incorrect charges you may have.
  • Document your purchases and Check your Statements...   By keeping a list of all the on-line stores you purchase from, the date of purchase and the amount you spent will help verify any suspicious charges to your account.  Because credit card usage during the holiday season dramatically increases for both in store and on-line purchases, check your statements at the beginning of the year for any fraudulent charges.
  • Avoid Public Wi-Fi… If shopping on your smart phone or on a computer, avoid shopping on public Wi-Fi networks or shared computers.  Consumers cannot guarantee the security of the computer and you are placing your personal information at risk whenever you use a public or community computer system to make a purchase on-line.
  • Know your delivery date and have a plan… Keep track of when your packages will be delivered to your home so the gifts will not be left unattended on your front door.  Lots of criminals drive around neighborhoods looking for unattended boxes on door steps.  Have a family member or trusted neighbor keep an eye out for you to take your packages inside once they are delivered.

Reno Police provide Safety Tips when Purchasing Private Party Items off the Internet

11/14/2016

As the holiday season approaches, many people look for good deals on new or used items to purchase locally off of the internet from websites like Craigslist, and Let Go.  The majority of the transactions in our community go as planned and people get what they pay for.  Unfortunately there have been some incidents that have been reported to local Law Enforcement where citizens get scammed or even robbed when meeting someone thinking they are getting a good deal.   

The Reno Police Department has several safety tips for our community to make internet purchases from private parties safer: 

  • Never meet anyone at your home or place of employment
  • Try to avoid paying in large amounts of cash
  • If paying in cash, go inside the bank to a teller to withdraw the money and not an ATM
  • Never provide your bank account or credit card number
  • Meet in a public place that has cameras if possible, with lots of pedestrian traffic
  • Try to meet in the daytime rather than nighttime
  • Take someone with you
  • Have your cell phone ready to dial 911 

Citizens can also meet the person at the nearest law enforcement agency.   The Reno Police Department is open Monday thru Thursday from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm, and on Friday from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm except for holidays.   

For more safety tips and to keep up on what is happening with the Reno Police Department, like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Reno Police Receive Grant Funds from Nevada Department of Public Safety

11/8/2016

In late October of this year, the Reno Police Department received a $78,210 grant from the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety to support Reno Police Departments Traffic Divisions participation in Joining Forces traffic safety campaigns during the coming year.

Joining Forces is a high visibility, multi-jurisdictional statewide effort to increase safety on Nevada’s roads by increasing enforcement and awareness of traffic laws. The goal is to reduce crashes and save lives by focusing on DUI, distracted driving, seat belts, speed, and pedestrian safety.

Thanks to this grant award, the Reno Police will be able to team up with other area jurisdictions for a number of Joining Forces events between October of 2016 and September of 2017.

Law enforcement personnel will continue to enforce traffic safety laws year-round as part of their commitment to reduce accidents and save lives. Whether you're the driver, a passenger, or pedestrian, the Reno Police Department reminds everyone to make safety a top priority.

Reno Police Remind Residents of the Dangers of Distracted Driving

11/2/2016

The Reno Police Department Traffic Division will be partnering with law enforcement agencies statewide by Joining Forces to focus on Distracted Drivers from Nov 2 -13, 2016.  Reno Police will be working diligently to urge motorists to keep your eyes on the road and put away cell phones or other items that cause distractions. On average texting takes your eyes off the road for 4.6 seconds. When traveling at 55mph, that's enough time to cover the length of a football field blindfolded. 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that traffic deaths rose 10.4 percent in the first half of 2016 over 2015. That means 1,665 more deaths across the country in six months. And it follows a 7 percent increase in 2015 over 2014, meaning this is a trend. The problem is distracted driving. Far too many of us are fiddling with our phones as we hurtle down the road. Please remember that the phone call or text can wait until you have arrived at your destination safely. 

For resources about distracted driving, please visit: http://www.distraction.gov/stats-research-laws/facts-and-statistics.html
