LAS VEGAS -- On day two of the coroner's inquest, jurors heard the 911 call made by a Costco supervisor to report a man acting erratically and carrying a gun. They also heard from the first police officer to confront Erik Scott.
Jurors are hearing testimony in the case of the officer involved shooting of Scott at the Summerlin Costco on July 10.
Metro Police Officer William Mosher started his testimony late Thursday afternoon and said as soon as he came into contact with Erik Scott, the situation got tense and Scott got defensive and reached for his gun.
Mosher was the first to meet Scott and his girlfriend outside the store. Mosher testified that Scott's eyes looked bloodshot, and he "seemed basically out of it."
"He says, 'I have a gun," Officer Mosher testified. "At that point, he uses his right hand, reaches into his waistband area where the firearm is, and he begins to come up with the firearm."
