    Police release pictures of suspects charged in murder of Las Vegas Metro Officer

    Officer Trevor Nettleton will be buried Wednesday.

    NORTH LAS VEGAS - Police have at least three suspects in custody in connection with the murder of Trevor Nettleton: an off-duty Metro officer who was killed just after midnight Thursday near Donna & Emerald. The mug shots for Prentice Marshall and Saul Williams were released before noon on Friday. Marshall is now out of the hospital and in jail.

    The third suspect is a 17-year-old male. Because of his age, his identity has not been released, but he will be tried as an adult.

    Officer Trevor Nettleton who had been with the force for 3 years, was working in his garage when an unknown number of subjects broke in.

    Police say gunfire was exchanged, and that's when Officer Nettleton was killed. One of the suspects, an 18 year old Prentice Marshall, was hit by gunfire. He was taken to UMC with non - life threatening injuries and was later arrested and booked. Marshall is North Las Vegas resident who has a criminal history for carrying a concealed weapon, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, obstructing a police officer, possession of stolen property and trespassing.

    Another suspect 20 year old Saul Williams Jr., who is also a North Las Vegas resident, was arrested and booked on a charge of murder with a deadly weapon. Williams has a juvenile record and pictures of him on MySpace show him gesturing gang signs.

    Investigators say it is an isolated incident, unrelated to his police work. Officer Nettleton leaves behind a wife, and two young children. His mother was also in town for the Thanksgiving holiday. He was born in Quincy, Washington and raised in Yakima, Washington.

    After high school Nettleton joined the Marine Corps. He served in the Marines for 9 1/2 years. He had a distinguished career and was part of the Presidential Guard under George W. Bush.

    Officer Nettleton was one of five officers who were commended by Metro two years ago for saving lives at a fire at the Century Meadows apartment complex, including two young children and an elderly man.

    The Injured Police Officers Fund has established an account for Officer Nettleton at Nevada State Bank.

    It's all over the news here... Another article with a few more details:

    UPDATED STORY: Police: 3 arrested in officer’s death have gang ties

    Three people have been arrested in connection with the death of a Metro Police officer fatally shot Thursday morning in his North Las Vegas home.

    Saul Williams Jr., 20, and Prentice Marshall, 18, were charged with murder in the death of 30-year-old officer Trevor Nettleton, a three-year veteran of the Metro Police department. Marshall was shot during an exchange of gunfire that occurred in the garage of Nettleson's home and was taken to University Medical Center for treatment.

    This morning, police announced that the Injured Police Officers Fund has opened an account for Officer Trevor Nettleton's family at Nevada State Bank. The account number is: 602027542.

    The IPOF assists officers and their family members with expenses not covered by industrial insurance for serious line-of-duty injuries or a line-of-duty death.

    Late Thursday, North Las Vegas Police announced the arrest of a third person, a 17-year-old male whose name was not released because of his age. The teen, a North Las Vegas resident, was being booked into the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center on charges of murder with a deadly weapon, attempted robbery with a weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery, police said.

    Williams has been booked into the North Las Vegas Detention Center. Marshall is under police protection at UMC and will be booked when he is released, said Sgt. Tim Bedwell of North Las Vegas Police.

    Investigators this afternoon said the shooting at about 12:18 a.m. in the 1100 block of Emerald Stone Avenue was random. Nettleson was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency medical crews.

    At an afternoon news conference, North Las Vegas Police Chief Joseph Forti called the shooting "senseless."

    Sheriff Doug Gillespie echoed those sentiments, saying "the Metro family suffered a senseless loss." Nettleton "put service and sacrifice above self," as both a Marine and in his effort to protect his family, Gillespie said.

    Evidence that led to the arrests wasn't discussed.

    Officers responded to Nettleton's home after receiving numerous reports of gunshots early Thursday in the area of Lone Mountain Road and Bruce Street.

    Investigators say Nettleton appeared to have been the victim of a random attack in his garage, possibly in a botched robbery attempt, Bedwell said.

    North Las Vegas Police spokeswoman Chrissie Coon said Nettleton and at least one of the suspects fired gunshots.

    Nettleton leaves behind a wife and two children, a 1-year-old son and a 2-month-old daughter. Before working for Metro Police, he served at the Bush White House during his last 18 months in the Marine Corps.

    Nettleton wasn't in a police uniform at the time of the shooting, Bedwell said.

    Police said the officer's family was home at the time.

    Neighbor Jorge Revera said the sound of two gunshots woke him up. His daughter, Jenny Martinez, 26, said she heard people running by her bedroom window, which faces the street.

    Revera said the gunshots surprised him because the neighborhood is usually calm and quiet.

    Neighbor Darrell Southern said he heard three gunshots while watching television and looked outside to see what happened. No one was in sight, he said.

    The criminal investigation is being conducted by North Las Vegas Police detectives, Coon said.

    Sheriff Doug Gillespie has offered to provide any Metro Police resources needed.

    "I've just lost another member of my police family," Gillespie said. "We are out there, keeping the community safe."

    Bedwell said whether it is an officer, a relative, or a child, officers investigate any such crime in the same way.

    Nettleton "was a hero as far as I'm concerned," Bedwell said. At least one of the two men were armed, but Bedwell said the number of shots fired would not be discussed.

    "We're going to continue to follow leads," Bedwell said. "He was protecting his family."

    Bedwell said Nettleton's garage door was open when the men entered.

    Nettleton was commended two years ago by Metro Police as one of five officers who saved lives, including those of two young children and an elderly man during a fire at the Century Meadows apartment complex in northwest Las Vegas.

    String those ****ers up! And ANYONE else who does that kind of shit, no matter if they're black, white, brown, yellow, red, green, no matter! Too much PC nowadays, and not enough ass kicking and name taking!
    I treat everyone with respect. I stack them in my trunk neatly.

    Keeping the "oath" since 1980.

    Okay. Now we do it my way.

    I think there is a lot of valuable lessons to be learned and this is a prime example as to always being wary and never let your guard down. RIP and may your family recover quickly.

    Unfortunately Nevada doesn't execute people like Texas. I can't think of one execution since I've lived here even though they have people on death row.

    My buddy's sister transported the wounded one from the hospital to jail.

    They were quite unrepentant from what she said, it sounds like this was NOT a byproduct of a random home invasion. He evidently was shot in the back, turned, drew, and fired, hitting the suspect in the balls. They ran off, he crawled into the house, and died in his mother's arms.

    Can you explain this further??

    I was reading through the comments that people left on the original story that the op had in his link. One of the posters claimed that the one suspect lived near where the officer lived.

    There is a lot of speculation that this was a gang initiation or retaliation.

    Despite what's being said I don't see how this could not be "job" related, even if it was just that they knew he was a cop and he happened to live near one of them. More details are needed.

    RIP Officer. It's our watch now.
