LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Las Vegas police shot and killed a man who was attacking a woman in a west valley home Sunday night.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said about 9 p.m. on September 6, they were called to the 10300 block of Timber Willow Avenue, near Sahara Avenue and Hualapai Way.
Las Vegas police said Wednesday they got a 9-1-1 call from the home where the victim, Holliday's wife, was heard screaming. During the call, she's heard saying her husband had stabbed himself and that he was "trying to kill her."
Sgt. King walked up to the door of the house, and saw Holliday standing behind a security door holding a knife to his wife. The door was locked and Sgt. King gave Holliday an order to drop the knife.
In body-worn camera footage, Holliday is seen refusing and instead yells at the officer to shoot him.
Sgt. King fired at the man once, ending the attack.
The suspect was pronounced dead on scene and the woman was taken to University Medical Center where she was listed as stable, Splinter said. A child was also in the house at the time, she said.
No officers were injured in the shooting.
This was the 14th shooting where a Metro officer had fired their weapon in 2020.
