LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officials have identified the suspects in an off-duty officer-involved shooting. Officials says Devan Allen, Markquwon Allen, Johnathan Pennington, Marquise Allen, and Crystal Garcia are the suspects.

One of those suspects, Marquise Allen, is still on the run.

"If you have any information on his whereabouts please contact Crime Stoppers," Assistant Sheriff Brett Zimmerman says.

Las Vegas police say its off-duty detective, 33-year-old Detective Austin Bone, was trying to stop a confrontation but fired 11 shots after one of the suspects charged at him and another pulled out a gun. Two suspects were injured as well as the detective.

Zimmerman says detectives with LVMPD Force Investigation determined that Bone came outside his home to retrieve his wallet from his car when he noticed a male neighbor and a female out at the front gate of his community. Bone observed two black men watching them from a wall and thought it was suspicious, Bone then went inside his home to retrieve his handgun and cellphone.

During that time, the female suspect and one male suspect walked down the street while the three other suspects ran up to the neighbor with a handgun and robbed him.

"[Detective Boone had gone out there to get cell phone video and once it escalated obviously we were involved in the OIS. That's what officers do whether they're on duty or off duty. They take protecting themselves, the community at high regard," Zimmerman says.

LVMPD released body camera footage from the first officer arriving on the scene, it shows Bone on the floor, his right leg and shoulder were injured in the crossfire.

Devan and Markqwon Allen, who are brothers, are still in the hospital.

Currently, Garcia and Pennington are detained at the Clark County Detention Center.

Police say the suspects have a long criminal record, some are out-of-state convicted felons, and are facing attempted murder charges and others.

Detective Bone was released from UMC Trauma and is expected to be okay.
