Reno Police Officer Shot, Suspect On the Run

A Reno (NV) Gang Officer was shot Thursday night after conducting a traffic stop.  In the exchange of gunfire, one suspect who was in the car, was shot and died at a local hospital.

Police are searching for another suspect, Eric Bernal.  He goes by Smokey and is part of a gang that has been in the Reno area for 40 years. Officers were watching him and his fellow gang members for at least a week.

It’s believe he is injured and armed. Officers would say if the injuries were from the confrontation, or from a previous incident.

    The officer has undergone surgery and is now in stable condition. The officer is expected to fully recover.

    Yeah. How is the Officer? That’s what important. We do not give a shit about the suspects other than one is dead and the other is suffering from high speed lead poisoning.
