Las Vegas police kill a man they say was wanted for murder

“Authorities say a fugitive in a recent Las Vegas slaying was shot and killed by police in Henderson after his car became disabled during a pursuit and he tried to commandeer a passing vehicle.

Henderson police spokesman Keith Paul says two officers opened fire and killed the 43-year-old man after he abandoned his car and tried to enter a passing woman’s vehicle a little after 9 a.m. at Warm Springs Road and Boulder Highway.

The man’s name wasn’t immediately disclosed. It’s not clear if the man was armed.”

It’s not clear if he was armed… but they trumpet his charges like that’s some kinda justification for what happened… like this was an execution.
