WEAPONS OFFENSE/ DEATH INVESTIGATION- DOLAN SPRINGS
Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Detectives are currently investigating a Weapon Offense that resulted in the
death of a Dolan Springs man. On Wednesday (4/15) at approximately 3:42 PM, dispatch received a call of
a male subject with gunshot wounds. Initial call notes indicated that a male subject was burglarizing a
residence in the 1600 block of Amana Rd. Two neighbors went to check the residence. The burglar then
exited the residence and fired several rounds from a rifle, striking one of the neighbors multiple times. The
neighbors returned fire striking the burglar suspect. The burglar then fled into the desert. The burglar was
located deceased in the desert area surrounding the property. The injured neighbor was flown to a Las
Vegas hospital in critical condition. At this time, we have reason to believe that the suspect could be linked
to multiple other burglaries in the Dolan Springs area. The identity of the burglar suspect is being withheld
pending notification of next of kin. This investigation is ongoing.
