The Criminal Apprehension Teams (CATS) Task Force, consisting of the FBI Las Vegas Division, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, and Henderson Police Department, was executing an arrest warrant on a fugitive that led to a foot pursuit. The fugitive was being arrested for robbery with a deadly weapon and was a suspect in multiple carjacking incidents.

Gunfire was exchanged between the subject and an FBI agent.

The FBI agent, who was wearing a protective vest, was hit and sustained non-life threatening injuries. The FBI agent has since been treated and released from University Medical Center (UMC).

The subject was also hit and transported to UMC. The subject later died from the injuries he sustained. The subject’s name will be released pending notification to his next of kin.
