Posted: Updated:

Four Las Vegas Metro police officers involved in the shooting of a Gulf War veteran at a condominium complex on the city's northwest side were identified Wednesday.

They are 34-year-old Officer Jesus Arevalo, 31-year-old Officer Malik Grego-Smith, 45-year-old Sgt. Michael Hnatuick and 40-year-old Lt. David Dockendorf.

The four were responding to reports of a burglary at the Alondra condominiums late Sunday night when they encountered 43-year-old Stanley Gibson.

Gibson was stopped in his vehicle between two Metro cruisers when he was shot multiple times. Police said Gibson attempted to ram a cruiser before the shooting.

In a news conference on Monday, Metro Sheriff Doug Gillespie said he would personally respond to questions about the shooting after the officers involved had given their statements.

According to police, Arevalo joined the department in February 2002; Grego-Smith joined in August 2008; Hnatuick joined in September 1988; and Dockendorf joined in July 1998.
