LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say an armed murder suspect was shot dead by local officers trying to arrest him in a residential neighborhood several blocks west of the Las Vegas Strip.

The man who was shot was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hadfield says no officers, agents or bystanders were injured.

Other details of the incident weren’t immediately available, and the names of the man who had been sought and the officers involved weren’t immediately made public.
