Eyewitness News now knows the name of the man involved in an officer involved shooting this weekend on the Las Vegas Strip. Police arrested 23-year-old Victor Ramos.

They say he had been fighting and shooting at someone in another car and was chasing him down the Strip.

Once police stopped him, one officer fired at the car, thinking Ramos was pulling the gun on him. They also found a shotgun inside the car.
