A Las Vegas police officer involved in the death of a motorist he was chasing earlier this month has been placed on paid leave until the completion of an internal investigation, a police spokeswoman said Friday.

Officer Barbara Morgan said 29-year-old Aron Carpenter, who was hired in 2006, was placed on routine leave after the officer's patrol vehicle collided with a car driven by 26-year-old Ivan Carrillo on May 19.
