(Las Vegas, NV) — Two deadly officer-involved shootings have been reviewed by the district attorney’s office.

District Attorney Steve Wolfson says in both cases, officers were confronted with “aggressive suspects” who “ignored clear commands” and resisted efforts to end the incidents without the use of force. The 2010 shootings had been awaiting a coroner’s inquest hearing.

Wolfson says 16 other cases will be reviewed by his office.
