A recently fired miner was shot and killed late Friday after he commandeered a 70-ton dump truck and went on a rampage at an open-pit silica mine outside Overton, destroying equipment, igniting fires and causing millions of dollars in damage, police said.

The man was shot and killed by a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper as he rammed the mining vehicle into firetrucks from the Overton and Logandale volunteer fire departments, police said.
