VIDEO: Las Vegas Officer Shot, Suspect Killed

July 15, 2015

Las Vegas Metro Police Officer Carlos Luna stopped a SUV driven by 54-year-old James Michael Todora Friday morning. The video shows Todora was agitated when he was pulled over for a broken tail light and complained about police involvement in a previous domestic situation with his wife.

There are about five seconds of blurred footage after Todora tells Luna that he has a gun to shoot himself, which police say was when the officer scrambled as the driver aimed at him. No bullet was discharged.

Officer Evan Hogue was hit by gunfire, suffering non-life-threatening injuries, while Officer Brian Kroening fatally shot Todora.
