Metro police were called to the scene of an armed robbery in progress late Friday night in Laughlin.

After receiving the call from LVMPD call center at 10:58 p.m., police units responded to a business located near Needles Highway and James A. Bilbray Parkway and found a suspect matching the description they were given.

According to police, officers began talking to the suspect, described as a white adult male, when the man revealed a handgun. Officers drew their weapons addressing commands at the suspect. In fear for their safety, one officer opened fire on the suspect. The suspect was struck and deceased at the scene.

This investigation is the first officer-involved shooting of 2014 in the LVMPD's jurisdiction.
