NORTH LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- North Las Vegas police said the department was responding to an officer-involved shooting on Sunday.
According to NLVPD spokesman Officer Eric Leavitt, a traffic stop near CC-215 and Range Road, close to I-15, evolved into a shooting around 8:30 a.m.
The officer involved tried to stop a maroon F250 pickup truck for speeding on eastbound 215, police said. The driver didn't stop and eventually "lost control" near Range Road.
The pickup drove toward the officer, police said, and the officer fired at least one shot at the suspect, who then fled in the truck.
The suspect was taken into custody nearby, at El Campo Grande Avenue, and was not injured.
Police were expected to release more information in the coming days.
