UPDATE: Police have identified the man arrested after an officer was shot at on Wednesday morning. He is 28-year-old Mark Norsingle. He was booked into the Las Vegas City Jail on one count of attempted murder of a police officer and felony evading.

The incident began after three men broke into a home on Partegus Street, hit a woman and stole various items. The preliminary investigation indicates that the victim knew the men.

An officer arriving on scene spotted the men fleeing the area in a SUV. The suspects began firing at the officer as they fled.

The suspects ditched the SUV near Craig Road and Decatur Boulevard. Two of the men hen stole a landscaping truck in a nearby neighborhood. The third man, Norsingle, was captured a short time later.

The stolen truck is a gray GMC Sierra with Nevada plate #214YWW. It was pulling a landscaping trailer. The other two suspects are still on the loose.


NORTH LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- A local police officer was shot at Wednesday morning near Craig Road and Decatur Boulevard.

The officer was not struck and one suspect is in custody. Police are looking for 2 other suspects.

"We believe that the suspects are armed and dangerous," said North Las Vegas police Officer Aaron Patty.

The incident began around 9 a.m. Police say the suspects initially went to a home to commit an unknown crime, which led to the shooting.

"We don't believe this is a random act of violence," Patty said.   

Police say the remaining 2 suspects stole another vehicle, a gray GMC Sierra pickup truck that was pulling a landscaping trailer.

All roads have reopened in the area.

"If you do see a gray GMC pick up truck pulling a black landscaping trailer, do not contact the people inside the vehicle," Patty said.
