Update on N. Edmonds SWAT action last Saturday:
The Carson City Sheriff’s Office has released the name of the man who was shot dead by SWAT team members in Carson City Saturday
A sheriff’s office release says the deceased male was identified as 32-year-old Cortney Ronald Staley. They said he was the biological father of the infant involved.
The CCSO said he died during an exchange of gunfire with a SWAT team just before 9pm following a long stand-off with Carson City Sheriff’s sharp-shooters. On more than one occasion Staley came out with his infant son pressed against his chest, screaming profanities at deputies. On one occasion Staley came out to yell at the deputies some more, while holding a pistol to his own head. After night-fall, the CCSO SWAT Team forced their way into the apartment, overwhelmed Staley with gunfire. Moments later Staley was dead. The infant was not injured.
A mother and father and their three young children went through Domestic Violence hell Saturday afternoon in Carson City as a fight between mom and dad turned deadly.
The estranged father was authorized by a judge to visit their children at their apartment on North Edmonds but a battle of words broke out causing the mother to scoop up two of the couples’ youngsters and all three fled the apartment, leaving the father holding the third child, an infant, in his arms. His estranged wife contacted the Sheriff’s Office and deputies began arriving on scene very quickly.
They surrounded the apartment at 1402 No. Edmonds where the father was hold-up with his infant son inside the apartment.
Deputies called the father out to talk to him. But the father spewed long tirades of profanities and when he came out holding his son in one arm he held a pistol against his own head yelling at deputies to leave.
The father and infant went back inside. Soon there was a gun blast from inside the apartment. Then another and another and then more. Finally the west side window of the apartment was blown out by a gun blast.
Right around sundown, the Carson City SWAT team rushed up the stairs and threw a “flash-bang” device into the apartment which went off like a bomb. Quickly the SWAT team went inside to bring the stand-off to a close – and that’s what happened. The father was killed but the infant was still okay. The infant was likely rushed to Carson Tahoe Hospital to be checked and evaluated.
No names have yet been released in connection with the incident.

From Carson City Sheriff’s Office
In an effort to ensure Carson City Sheriff’s Office officers are able to meet the physical demands associated with law enforcement, the department is sponsoring the construction of a new fitness facility. The facility will be located within the department for continuous availability and will provide equipment meant for specific job performance demands. Officers must be able to respond to every type of incident and often experience a wide range of emotional and physical stressors. The goal is to promote overall wellness for Carson City’s law enforcement personnel. Previously officers have been individually contributing and seeking funds to support this facility. Officers are now reaching out and requesting community support, a GoFundMe account has been established to help officers reach their fundraising goal of $30,000.
There are many ways to support your local law enforcement, whether through personal advocacy, volunteerism or generous donation, your support encourages a safe and resilient community. Should you choose to donate, your donation will ensure current and future law enforcement officers have the equipment they need to improve their response capabilities.
If you have any questions call the Carson City Sheriff’s Office at (775) 887-2500 and ask for Sheriff Ken Furlong, or board members of CCDSA, Detectives James Boggan and Brett Bindley.
Thank you for your interest and support. Detectives James Boggan and Brett Bindley have volunteered much time and research into this project to ensure all the information is provided. Please follow this link to a presentation which displays the current first floor gym and its equipment. While the current equipment is a great resource for improving physical health it is very limited and restricts the amount of users at any given time. It is the goal of the Sheriff’s Office to promote optimum physical health, alertness, reaction training and emotional health among first responders. This project will ensure current and future personnel have the equipment which focuses on work-related priority endurance. Thanks to the research our Detectives provided it is clear that the current equipment does not suffice all first responder demands; the second floor gym is intended to do just that. In addition this project is intended to add equipment to the first floor gym therefore heightening availability and access. Thank you so much for your interest and if you have any questions give the Sheriff’s Office a call at (775) 887-2500 and ask for Sheriff Ken Furlong, or board members of CCDSA, Detectives James Boggan and Brett Bindley. Your advocacy and support is always appreciated and fundamentally important to our public safety personnel. Please review the presentation.
The Carson City Board of Supervisors got an eyeful of progress Thursday morning on plans that are moving ahead toward completion of the Lake Tahoe hiking and biking project along the east shore of the lake. Project managers are still taking public input on what will be among some of the finishing touches on the east shore project. It’s been underway for well over ten years but the finish line appears within reach – sometime after 2022.
The project is adding parking areas and transit bus services for locals and visitors to access the dramatically upgraded pathways through some of the most beautiful spots on this Earth – Lake Tahoe.
Included in the final phases are moving utility lines underground, restrooms, transit service drop off and pickup, and expanded parking – some with experimental parking fees.
The estimated time for completion is not precisely known because funds to finish the break-taking project are not formally available…but are predicted to arrive just in time to complete the eastern shore loop.
Traffic crash at William at Stewart. Air bags popped out. One possible injury. Some blocking. Right next to The Cracker Box.
Democrat Clint Koble is obviously no quitter. Although he lost his bid to unseat incumbent Nevada Republican Congressman Mark Amodei in the last election, Kolbe says he’ll file for Amodei’s job in the next election.
