An employee at a gas station on College Parkway Tuesday night was eyeing a man in a car who looked suspicious. The employee called 9-1-1 and summoned sheriff’s deputies to the scene. The man in the car refused to come out, and at one point, threw out a large kitchen knife.
After a half-hour of negotiations the man came out of his car and was immediately taken into custody after deputies had earlier learned that the driver, Jamal Coleman, was a suspect in a murder in the Las Vegas area.
Coleman was taken to the Carson City Jail where he awaits transport back to Las Vegas where authorities there will take over the case.
