LAS VEGAS -- The Clark County Coroner says they have postponed the inquest into an officer involved shooting at a Summerlin Costco.
Erik Scott was killed by Las Vegas police as he left the Costco on July 10. The inquest was originally scheduled for September 3, but has been postponed indefinitely.
The decision to postpone the inquest was made after the Clark County District Attorney's Office requested more time to gather information about the case. Postponing an inquest is rare, but not unheard of.
According to District Attorney David Roger, his office asked for the delay for several reasons. Roger says his office has not received the reports and witness statements from Metro Police. Once the DA's office gets that information, attorney's will need to time to review it. He says there could be 100 to 200 witnesses.
