Las Vegas Metro Police released bodycam footage from early Tuesday morning when a robbery suspect was fatally wounded after cops responded to a 911 call. The suspected burglar was armed with a hammer as he entered the home of a septuagenarian couple, 73 and 76, respectively. When authorities arrived, they saw the hammer-wielding suspect through the front door.
The residents quickly unlocked the door for the officers, at which point, the burglar charges at the residents with the hammer. The officer can be heard screaming, “No!” before discharging his weapon. Authorities say he broke into the home and demanded money, car keys and threatened to kidnap the female resident. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The suspect was later identified as 40-year-old Nathaniel Sironen.
