Bodycam: Las Vegas Police Fired 26 Shots At Suspect William Alfredo Chafoya


A Metropolitan Police Department field training officer and his trainee fired 26 shots during a shootout in a North Las Vegas residential neighborhood. William Alfredo Chafoya, 37, was struck by 19 shots fired by the officers in the Monday confrontation. Ashley Elizabeth Olivetti, 31, who was with Chafoya, was struck in the arm by an officer’s round during the crossfire, Assistant Sheriff Todd Fasulo said at a briefing Thursday. Initial reports said she was shot by Chafoya. Fasulo said Chafoya fired five shots during the encounter — at least one into the air and then in the direction of the officers. The assistant sheriff said the officers’ use of lethal force was a split-second decision necessitated by the presence of two bystanders in front of the home on the 4600 block of N. Goldfield Street, near Lone Mountain Road. “The people who were in the front of that house could have been shot,” Fasulo said. Source
