By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Aug 20, 2013

Henderson, NV (KTNV) -- Henderson police have served a search warrant at a home near Mcbride Way, close to U.S. 95 and Lake Mead Parkway.

Neighbors told Action News it was the home of the man shot and killed in a gun battle with Henderson officers Tuesday morning.

The incident started around 8 a.m. when a 63-year-old man ambushed a Henderson police officer sitting in a patrol car.

The man was then shot and killed by police after he fired shots at them. He was armed with three handguns and had a rifle on his motorcycle.

The ordeal happened on Boulder Highway, just south of College Avenue.

Officers at a nearby accident scene responded to the shooting.

The identity of the man killed has not been released.
