Officer’s hesitation during Las Vegas shooting prompts review

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A veteran police officer’s self-described freeze in a Las Vegas hotel hallway while a gunman fired on an outdoor concert crowd is prompting a review of whether lives could have been saved if officers had acted faster.

Police tactics experts say they understand Officer Cordell Hendrex hesitating as he led a trainee and three Mandalay Bay hotel security guards toward the sound of gunfire on Oct. 1.

They say officers are taught to stop a shooter but not to take unnecessary risks.

Hendrex wrote later that he was “terrified with fear” and knows he “froze right there.”

“When you see an incident where an officer by his own admission freezes,   it’s very disturbing,” said Randy Sutton, a retired LVMPD Police lieutenant.  “You don’t wait. You don’t analyze. You make a decision. You look at it tactically, and you act.”

What's Driving You Crazy? - Wed. Mar. 28, 2018

NORTH LAS VEGAS, NV - To say that traffic in one part of town is going down the drain may not be far from the truth. It's sewer work that's driving you crazy getting in and out of Nellis Air Force Base.

The main entrance to the base is blocked by a North Las Vegas sewer installation project that's shut down Las Vegas Blvd and Craig Rd. In fact Craig Rd is closed a few blocks west of the base. Air Force personnel had been warned about the work. If they're used to getting on property from Craig Road, they're being directed to go south on Nellis to Gowan to use a different entrance. Drivers using Las Vegas Blvd from south of the base also should use the Gowan entrance. Base traffic is being allowed to exit at the main entrance, but drivers can only go north on Las Vegas Blvd via a frontage road. Engineers from the City of North Las Vegas haven't gotten back to us, but the project will likely last through at least the end of the week. ... Read More
