The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office says they responded to an incident that ended in an officer-involved shooting in the 3000 block of Second Street in Silver Springs on Monday. It came after calls for a physical domestic battery.
“There were two 911 calls that came in. Upon arrival of the residence, things escalated rather quickly and shots were fired inside the residence,” Lt. Jerry Pattison, Lyon County Sheriff’s Office said. “One deputy was injured and the individual who had attacked the cops was pronounced dead on-scene.”
Pattison says deputies arrived at the house at 6:48 PM and the shooting happened shortly afterward. He says the injured deputy went to Carson-Tahoe Medical Center for bumps and bruises. Nobody else was seriously injured, including the suspect’s wife and kids. He says they were treated outside of the house.
