The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police have identified the man who was shot by police after he assaulted officers with a truck.
Austin Cadeaux was formally identified during a Monday press brief, according to KNTV.
LVMPD Assistant Sheriff Brent Zimmerman said that officers shot thirteen times when Caseaux rammed two cruisers with a U-Haul truck, forcing 25-year-old Officer Joshua Byington to open fire.
Cadeaux, who fled on foot a short distance before being captured, is still alive and is being held at the Clark County Detention Center.
Byington has been placed on administrative leave.
