costco 385 KXNT Morning News Talks With Steve Sisolak

Several proposed changes to the coroner’s inquest process met with skepticism by several Clark County Commissioners. The coroner’s inquest has gained attention from the shooting of Erik Scott outside of the Summerlin Costco.

At Tuesday’s meeting, commission members received a list of recommended changes to the process of investigating deadly police-involved shootings. They include have an appointed attorney represent families of suspects killed by police. The omnibusman would be allowed to question witnesses at the inquest. But several commissioners questioned how the lawyer would be paid and selected. The panel also recommended replacing the inquest jury that decides whether an officer was justified in a deadly shooting, with an inquest panel that would reflect the valley’s diversity. A public hearing on the inquest changes is scheduled for December 7th.
