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.

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