Man shot by Reno police dead, 2nd man apprehended

CREATED Sep 4, 2014

RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Reno police say an armed man is dead after he was shot by members of a fugitive apprehension team, and another man was arrested after a four-hour search east of downtown.

Officer Tim Broadway said the man who died after the 11 a.m. Wednesday shooting on Sutro Street had been sought by a multi-agency task force.

Broadway said he didn't immediately know the underlying charge.

Broadway said at least one officer opened fire at the gun-wielding man.

Broadway wouldn't disclose which agency the officers were from.

Nearby schools and the Washoe County Senior Center were locked down for a time until officers apprehended the second man.

Broadway says he was found about 3 p.m. in an unoccupied home two blocks away.

The names of the men weren't immediately made public.
