Road Rage Suspect Dies At Hospital
A Henderson man whom authorities say was a suspect in a road rage incident has died.
The Clark County Coroner’s office has identified the man as 21-year-old Eduardo Lopez-Hernandez, but says it will take several weeks to determine the cause of death. The Department of Public Safety says Highway Patrol troopers were called out to an accident on northbound U.S. 95 near Charleston Boulevard Wednesday night, and there were reports of a man fighting with others at the scene. The DPS says the troopers had a physical altercation with Hernandez-Lopez, who was described as an “irate individual.” Authorities say the man was shot with a Taser, and soon after was not breathing. Life-saving measures were performed at the scene, but Lopez-Hernandez later died at Sunrise Hospital. Metro Police homicide detectives are investigating the case, and they are urging witnesses to come forward with information. His Father Fillabalo Lopez spoke to 8 News Now saying that his son is unlike what the police described.
