Preliminary reports are emerging that a U.S. Marshal has died after being shot in the head at George Floyd protests in Las Vegas.

KTNV and local CBS affiliate 8 News Now said gunshots were heard before metro police swarmed the area outside the Federal Court House on Las Vegas boulevard following protests that happened in Fremont Street near Container Park.

KTNV reporters said they were unsure if it was an active situation, but a countless number of officers were in the area in downtown Las Vegas.

“Someone nearby heard someone had been shot – they are in touch with metro police. It did sound like a number of gunshots – a metro police cruiser was rushing into the area.”

Ed Komenda, Reno Gazette Journal, reported that at around 12 a.m. Tuesday “police have blocked off the Las Vegas Strip from The Strat — the towering resort at the southern end of Las Vegas Boulevard — to Caesar’s Palace.”

He reported that earlier in the evening, a protester had been shot by police “after witnesses say he opened fire first.”

Orko Manna, reporter with 8 News Now, confirmed that the LVMPD officer had been shot in the head, and someone else on the scene had been shot by metro police after they opened fire outside the Courthouse.
