Washoe County, Nevada – On Saturday, detectives with the Northern Nevada Regional Intelligence Center and members of the Regional Gang Unit collaborated to arrest several subjects wanted for previous involvement in recent party shootings in Washoe County.
The Regional Gang Unit says they heard gunshots in the area of 10th Street and Manhattan, and attempted to stop the related vehicle.
The car fled the area at a high rate of speed and was later located with the occupants fleeing the car and entering a local apartment complex. The occupants refused to exit, prompting the response of RPD’s SWAT team.
The SWAT team was able to safely apprehend all 10 suspects, who are now being held in custody. Police believe that these suspects are responsible for a number of recent party shootings in the area.
This is the latest in a string of violent incidents involving guns in Washoe County. In recent months, there have been several reports of shootings at parties and other gatherings.
Police are urging the public to come forward with any information about these incidents. They are also asking parents to talk to their children about the dangers of gun violence.
“We need the community’s help to stop this violence,” said Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam. “If you see something, say something.”
Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to contact the Regional Gang Unit at 775-334-2000.
