Sparks Police released body cam footage of officer shooting man who was armed at a shopping center
The Sparks Police Department released new body cam footage of the moment an officer opened fire on a man who was armed at a shopping center in Sparks.
The Washoe County coroner has identified the man killed as 29-year-old Dylan Wilson, who died after being shot several times. The medical examiner says it's believed Wilson was homeless.
According to Sparks Police, it happened around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Iron Horse Shopping Center near East Prater Way and North McCarran Blvd.
Police say they initially responded to a report of a woman screaming for help and saying an armed man was arguing with her and another man.
When police arrived, they say the suspect ran away from officers, and they pursued him for a short distance, but then he pulled out a knife and charged officers.
They opened fire and Wilson later died at Renown Regional Medical Center.
