Brother wants facts in officer slaying

LAS VEGAS (AP) – The brother of a man slain in a bedroom confrontation with an off-duty Nevada police officer is promising a civil lawsuit or other fact-finding effort.

Timur Durdyevtells thinks the officer and his brother’s estranged wife are providing the same account of the early Sept. 17 shooting at the woman’s home in Henderson.

They’re the only two people who saw the shooting.

Clark County Coroner Mike Murphy said Monday an inquest isn’t warranted because 32-year-old Henderson Police Officer Edward Little wasn’t acting in an official capacity.

Police say 38-year-old Ruslan Zhgenti had a handgun when he was fatally shot after entering the home and confronting his estranged wife and Little.
