LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say four officers with decades of law enforcement experience between them were involved in a police shooting that resulted in the death of an unarmed 43-year-old Gulf War veteran.

Police said Wednesday that Officer Jesus Arevalo, Officer Malik Grego-Smith, Sgt. Michael Hnatuick, and Lt. David Dockendorf were involved in the fatal shooting of Stanley Lavon Gibson Monday morning.

Arevalo is 34, Grego-Smith is 31, Hnatuick is 45 and Dockendorf is 40.

They are all assigned to the patrol division.

Police say Gibson rammed his vehicle into police cruisers, leading officers to fire multiple shots into the vehicle toward Gibson.

Police were at Gibson’s condominium complex investigating a reported burglary.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Gibson and his wife had moved into the condo Dec. 1.
