A suspect was arrested by a SWAT team, but that person’s name wasn’t immediately released, Lombardo added.
While LVMPD officers were investigating the shooting, officers guarding the Foley Federal Building were confronted by an armed man around 11:22 p.m., Lombardo said. That suspect, who appeared to be wearing body armor, had multiple firearms.
“During the interaction, the subject reached for his firearm and our officers engaged him,” Lombardo said. The suspect, who hasn’t yet been identified, died at the hospital. It’s unclear whether that individual had been among the protestors, Lombardo added.
