The Lake Havasu City Police Department will be investigating an officer-involved shooting that occurred Friday evening(1/27/23) at the Silver View RV Resort at Silver Creek/Gold Rush Road in Bullhead City.
After a 7.5 hour stand-off with law enforcement, the barricaded armed male suspect came out of his trailer and was taken into custody.
The suspect fired numerous rounds at police and several officers returned fire. One of the rounds shot by the suspect reportedly went through a nearby trailer and struck an innocent bystander. The victim is being treated at a Las Vegas, NV hospital and is reportedly in stable condition. No officers were hurt.
More information will be released from the LHCPD. It is standard protocol to have an outside agency investigate an officer-involved shooting incident.
