A man shot and killed in an officer-involved shooting near the Lemmon Drive underpass along 395 in Reno Thursday night has been identified.
Police say about 45 minutes later, Porter told dispatchers he was armed with a shotgun and was going to shoot the next car he saw. He then approached officers and deputies at Lemmon Drive and North Virginia Street in the presence of a SWAT vehicle and numerous marked patrol cars. The officers and deputies began talking to Porter, who had a long gun with him, trying to calm him down. Police later determined the weapon was an air gun.
"Whether it's one, two, three, 20, 30, 10, seven, it's just too early to know those details right now because we have to look at the entire investigation and what the officers were faced with," Gallop said.
