Police hunt for shooter who fired at Vegas cops
A helicopter circled while officers wearing body armor searched the area carrying assault rifles
LAS VEGAS — Police went door-to-door with guns drawn searching a neighborhood northeast of downtown Las Vegas after one or more assailants fired shots that narrowly missed officers making a traffic stop.
Officer Barbara Morgan says no one was wounded, but at least two shots went over the heads of two officers just after 8 a.m. Tuesday.
Aerial views showed officers taking cover behind a marked patrol car near an apartment complex while other uniformed officers sealed off the area east of U.S. 95 and Eastern Avenue.
A police helicopter circled overhead while officers wearing body armor walked through the area carrying assault rifles. Other officers with dogs searched nearby back yards.
