Contrary to prior news reports, the FBI is not investigating the increase in the number of shootings by Las Vegas police. The agency is conducting a civil rights investigation into one officer-involved shooting by the Metropolitan Police Department this year, but officials won't say which one.

David Staretz, spokesman for the FBI's Las Vegas offices, said Sunday that the investigation includes reviewing the Clark County coroner's inquest and the police department's investigation of the shooting to determine whether any of the victim's civil rights were violated.
