KOLO reports a suspect in a shooting at the Montage condominium complex in downtown Reno is dead. No name has been released by police.
RENO, Nevada – Sierra Street is closed from 1st to 5th Streets until further notice. Some surrounding streets are also still closed.
Police say the shooter was barricaded inside the Montage, at 255 North Sierra, with a hostage, whom police say is now safe with no injuries. Police believe the suspect and hostage had a domestic relationship.
Shots were fired by the suspect within the condo and onto Sierra Street from the east side of an 8th floor unit. The suspect was shot by police and died on the way to a hospital; police initially believed the injuries were not life-threatening. Officer-Involved Shooting Protocol is being enacted since Reno Police and the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office were in the unit when the suspect was shot. Police say Sparks Police will likely take over the part of the investigation involving the shooting of the suspect, described as a man in his twenties.
Besides the death of the suspect, the only reported injury is a hand injury; it’s not clear who that person is or what the nature of the injury is, but police say it is not serious.
A SWAT team and the Washoe County Sheriff RAVEN helicopter responded to the scene.
Suspect in the shooting in downtown is detained. Thankfully no reports of injuries to citizens or officers or deputies.
