LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Newly released video from Nevada Highway Patrol shows the tense moments before state troopers shot and killed a kidnapping suspect Sunday morning near Lake Mead Boulevard and Los Feliz.
The video shows the man reaching towards his back moments before being shot.
Troopers say they thought Adrian Zarate-Cervantes was reaching for a gun. However, officers say no gun was found.
Cervantes' wife had called 9-1-1 saying he kidnapped her.
NHP says both troopers followed department policy and they thought their lives were in danger.
