Bail $100K for man shot by Las Vegas police in stolen pickup
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Bail has been set at $100,000 for a 24-year-old Las Vegas man who remains hospitalized after being shot by officers who say he appeared to reach for a gun as they approached him and a stolen vehicle.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Joshua Wade was not in court Friday to face stolen vehicle, weapon and assault on an officer charges.
Marissa Pensabene, a public defender appointed to represent Wade for bail arguments, declined to comment.
Wade is due in court next Tuesday.
Police say Wade was shot late Wednesday after officers tracking a stolen Dodge pickup truck said he put the vehicle in reverse toward them, got out and appeared to reach for a gun.
Police say investigators later found what appeared to be a gun near the truck.
