Las Vegas officers are looking for a good guy!
Officers say they want to thank the unknown citizen who rushed to the aid of an injured patrol officer on Sept. 6. At 12:12 p.m. that day, two uniformed LVMPD officers were on their way to a disturbance call.
While the officers were stopped at a traffic light at an intersection, a teen with a handgun walked up and opened fire on the two officers.
Metro said both officers jumped out of their unmarked vehicle and took cover. Officer Thomas Clevenger was hit in the hand.
The other officer ran after the suspect and apprehended him.
Metro released surveillance video that shows an unidentified man pulling into the parking lot of the 7-Eleven in an unknown model Mercedes. He ran inside the gas station, got towels and ran to the aid of the injured officer. He left the scene before officers could than him or get his name.
“We just want to be able to say thank you properly,” Metro Police Officer Jesse Roybal told Las Vegas Now.
