Over the weekend in North Las Vegas, police shot and killed a guy who was brandishing a gun and threatening bystanders while wearing a Michael Myers mask. According to Local 12, the masked guy, 44-year-old Christopher Earl Smith, died from numerous gunshot wounds following a confrontation with police on Sunday in a public park. According to the station, North Las Vegas Police got numerous 911 reports about a man in a "Halloween" mask waving a gun at people near a mini-mart and park. One panicked caller exclaimed to the dispatchers, "I work at the Carry Mini-mart, we have a guy out that had a pistol and he's pulled it on couple of customers." "He's a little wacko," [caption id="attachment_54363" align="aligncenter" width="1535"]Christopher Earl Smith Christopher Earl Smith was shot and killed by police in Las Vegas, after he was threatening people with a gun wearing a Michael Myers mask.[/caption]   Officers responded and found Smith walking through the park near Martin Luther King Boulevard and Carey Avenue around 5:40 p.m. According to bodycam footage released by police, Officer Anthony Malear spotted Smith, identified himself as police and repeatedly asked Smith to stop where he was and put his hands up. Bodyshot Smith continued walking and began to reach for the reportedly stolen pistol in his waistband as he walked toward five bystanders, the footage shows. “Stop reaching, don’t reach!” Malear can be heard yelling in the video before he fires eight rounds at Smith. Smith died at the scene. He had alcohol, THC and oxycodone in his blood at the time of his death, according to the medical examiner. Malear has been placed on administrative leave while the department investigates the shooting.
