LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The panel aimed at analyzing police-related deaths in Clark County has scheduled Feb. 28 as its first review under the newly-formed process.

The Clark County District Attorney's office announced the case involving the death of Stanley Gibson will be reviewed that day.

Gibson was the disabled Gulf War veteran who died after a Las Vegas Metro police officer opened fire at him on Dec. 11, 2011.

According to police, Officer Jesus Arevalo stopped Gibson's vehicle. Gibson did not comply to the officer's orders to exit the vehicle, police said. Metro noted he was not armed.

The D.A.'s office said it would not seek a grand jury indictment against Arevalo in the 43-year-old Gibson's death.

The review is slated to happen at Clark County Commission Chambers in downtown Las Vegas at 9 a.m.

The county also announced subsequent reviews following Gibson's case, which include:

  • Ronald Morrison - 10/29/2012 shooting involving the LVMPD;
  • Daniel Hathorne - 11/02/2012 shooting involving the LVMPD;
  • Justin Hoey - 11/07/2012 shooting involving the Henderson Police Department.

The reviews will be broadcast on Clark County Television Cox Cable Channel 4 and at ClarkCountyNV.gov.
