March 29, 2019

As the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports:

A 20-year-old armed robbery suspect shot by a Las Vegas officer on Saturday night is also accused of burglarizing a Boys & Girls Club minutes before the shooting, an official said Wednesday.

Security footage played at a Wednesday news briefing showed Steven R. Aguirre, 20, rummaging through some drawers about 10 p.m. Saturday at the clubhouse of the Donald W. Reynolds Boys & Girls Club, 2980 Robindale Road, near North Pecos Road in Henderson.

Metropolitan Police Department officer Darko Milanovic, 31, and his partner found the man about 15 minutes later just east of the club, in the area of nearby Robindale and Fountain Heights Lane, Clark County Assistant Sheriff Brett Zimmerman told news media Wednesday.

Milanovic shot Aguirre once in the leg after he had reached toward a revolver holstered on his hip, Zimmerman said.

Aguirre was hospitalized at University Medical Center with a survivable injury.

Milanovic and his partner had been searching for the suspect since an armed robbery was reported at 9:37 p.m. at an auto parts shop at 8010 S. Eastern Ave., near East Windmill Lane, Zimmerman said.

Las Vegas police said a man wearing a mask, later identified by police as Aguirre, held up two people at gunpoint at the shop and left with the cash register drawer. Police found the cash drawer near the intersection of Eastern and Bluegrass Lane, just north of the auto shop.
