HENDERSON, Nev. (KLAS) – The Clark County Coroner identified Mason Workman, 40, as the man shot and killed during a shootout in a residential neighborhood near the Anthem Country Club.

Workman’s death was ruled a homicide, caused by multiple gunshot wounds.

A Henderson police officer was also wounded in the incident, police said. The officers involved were identified as Officer Alejandro Alcantara and Officer Conrad Lillegard.

Police were called to a home in the 2200 block of Galindo Court, near Reunion Dr. and Anthem Pkwy., around 9:30 p.m. Sunday night to investigate a family disturbance, according to Henderson Police Lt. Kirk Moore. The first officer encountered a man who was drunk and armed with a gun, now identified as Workman.

“The male was uncooperative,” Moore noted. “At some point during the encounter, the male produced a firearm, resulting in an officer-involved shooting.

Lt. Moore said the officer was also shot and wounded, but the injury is considered non life-threatening. The next arriving officers provided first aide to the wounded officer. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. The officer was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

Any body-worn camera or surveillance video from the confrontation is expected to be released as part of the officer-involved shooting investigation.
