Attorney Wants Federal Prosecutor On Case

Originally posted on CBS Las Vegas:

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas attorney is invoking events in Ferguson, Missouri, in a call for federal prosecutors in Nevada to take over the investigation of the February slaying of a 20-year-old man by Bureau of Land Management rangers.

Jacob Hafter, representing the family of D’Andre Berghardt Jr., said Tuesday that Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson has the results of a police investigation but doesn’t have jurisdiction because the case involves federal agents.

Hafter says that in Missouri, a grand jury is reviewing the Aug. 9 shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a Ferguson police officer.

Hafter says it’s been six months in the Berghardt case, with no answers.

Berghardt was killed Feb. 14 after authorities say he made threats and tried to climb into a Nevada Highway Patrol vehicle.

Originally posted on CBS New York:

DOLAN SPRINGS, Ariz. (CBSNewYork/AP) – A 9-year-old New Jersey girl accidentally killed an Arizona shooting instructor as he was showing her how to use an automatic Uzi, authorities said Tuesday.

Charles Vacca, 39, of Lake Havasu City, died Monday shortly after being airlifted to University Medical Center in Las Vegas, Mohave County sheriff’s officials said.

[cbs-audio-player title="Officials: 9-Year-Old Girl Accidentally Kills Ariz.

Investigators said Vacca was standing next to the girl at the Last Stop outdoor shooting range in White Hills when she pulled the trigger and the recoil sent the gun over her head and one of the discharged bullets struck the instructor in the head, CBS 2’s Dick Brennan reported.

New Fire Station Opens

Originally posted on CBS Las Vegas:

(Las Vegas, KXNT)-The east side of Las Vegas is welcoming its brand new fire station on Wednesday.

Mayor Carolyn Goodman along with Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid will help officially open the station, located on Bonanza near Lamb Boulevard.

The City of Las Vegas paid more than 6.5 million dollars to build the station, coming in under budget by $174,000.  Fire expert Tim Szymanski says this area in east Las Vegas desperately needed a fire station, equipped with medical emergency responders.

“It’s a very heavily populated area and you have the highway close by…that typically results in more emergency calls, ” explained Szymanski.  “We needed a station nearby that would help reduce that response time.”

So far, it’s working.  The fire station has been in operation for the last week.   Szymanski says they have already been able to cut down on response times at that station by two minutes.

Spider Webs Force Suzuki To Recall Midsize Cars

Originally posted on CBS Las Vegas:

DETROIT (AP) –Spiders have forced Suzuki to recall more than 19,000 midsize cars.

The automaker says spider webs can clog a fuel vapor vent hose in some 2010 to 2013 Kizashi cars, cutting off air flow. If that happens, it can cause the gas tank to deform, causing cracks, fuel leaks and possible fires.

The recall was prompted by seven reports of the problem. Service centers will replace the vent line with one that has a filter on the end. The company says in documents filed with safety regulators that the problem hasn’t caused any accidents or injuries in the U.S.

Owners will be notified this month.

American Suzuki Motor Corp. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in November of 2012 and stopped selling automobiles in the U.S.
