Sparks, Nevada β€” Newly released body camera footage and dispatch calls show Sparks police fatally shooting 59-year-old Francisco Pena on Aug. 22 in an apartment complex on Market Street. Sparks police dispatch received a 9-1-1 call from a woman who stated her husband was threatening her with a knife inside of her residence. The reporting party explained that her teenage son was also inside the residence and had suffered an unknown injury while attempting to disarm his father. During the 9-1-1 call the reporting party said she had left her residence in fear for her safety. Dispatchers were advised by the reporting party, that she had gone to a neighbor’s house and could see the suspect actively looking for her outside.

Upon arrival, officers could hear screaming and yelling coming from the apartment. Officers approached the apartment and saw Pena, armed with a knife in the doorway, who matched the description provided by the reporting party. Additionally, officers observed a younger male who had visible signs of injury within arm’s reach of Pena and was later identified as Pena’s son. Officers gave multiple verbal commands for Pena to drop the knife. Pena refused to drop the weapon and continued yelling at the officers aggressively while holding the knife. Due to the close proximity of Pena to his injured son, the officers and his refusal to drop the knife, they believed he presented an imminent and immediate threat of death or serious bodily harm.

Officers then discharged their service weapons, striking Pena. Officers provided medical aid to Pena until they were relieved by medical personnel. Pena was then transported to a local area hospital, where he was later pronounced deceased. The investigation revealed that Pena was in possession of a knife during the incident. Further investigation confirmed that Pena and the reporting party, did not live together and had been separated for several years. It was also revealed that Pena had brought a loaded black semi-automatic rifle, in addition to the knife with him into the residence.

  1. I can't see enough in either of the videos to determine exactly what was happening. I know from a professional standpoint Whoever has the AR should have been the only one to fire I have no idea why he fired around the corner of the door

  2. The let him DIE ON PURPOSE YOU SEE HOW THEY WORKING ON THEM NO KIND OF URGENCY WHATSOEVER DIDN'T EVEN START WORKING ON HIM FOR 10 MINUTES OVER THAT THEY LET HIM DIE ON PURPOSE ALL THESE COPS SHOULD BE FIRED AND UNLESS THAT COP'S BODY CAMERA CAN JUSTIFY THE SHOOTING IT LOOKS LIKE A BAD SHOOT TOO THIS IS WHY NO ONE WANTS F**** COPS NO MORE πŸ’―πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ΄β€β˜ οΈ

  3. As a former dispatcher for a large department, I have to say this dispatcher is one of the very worst!!!! She kept asking the caller info which the caller already CLEARLY gave or was completely not necessary, all while not asking pertinent questions!!! I understood it the very 1st time!!!!

  4. To understand the son's immediate response to the police shooting his father, you'd have to have gone through a major traumatic event yourself, and been surprised by the words that came out of your mouth. Those words don't have to make any logical sense, as they are just a reflexive discharge of the raw emotions.

  5. The cops knew there was no one else in the apt, they just didn't wanna bother with the first aid.
    You can hear it in their voice.
    That son is gonna hunt those cops down, watch.
