The suspect in a domestic violence incident was taken into custody by Clark County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) deputies Thursday.
On Thursday (June 24) at about 4:25 p.m., CCSO Central Precinct deputies responded to a reported family disturbance near NE 162nd Ave and NE Poplar Dr. One family member was armed with a shotgun threatening to kill the family. A struggle ensued and the firearm was taken away from the suspect.
Upon the arrival of deputies, the suspect emerged and was non-compliant telling deputies “just shoot me.” At one point the suspect turned and ran back to the house and attempted to force open the front door.
Deputies gave chase and the suspect turned, armed with a sharp metal object raised and began moving toward the deputies who were mere feet away at this point. Deputies deployed a Taser and took the suspect into custody without further incident.
The investigation revealed the suspect pointed the shotgun at the victim and made death threats to the family as well as suicidal statements. The suspect assaulted other family members as well.
The suspect was booked at the Clark County Jail on several felony domestic violence charges and attempted felony assaults against the deputies.
