From Senator Wyden: Racial hatred and relaxed gun laws added up to a toxic combination yet with lethal consequences for innocent people in Buffalo, NY. They are now grieving forever-lost loved ones. Plain and simple – guns have become too easy to acquire by those who would launch blind domestic terrorism.
Law Enforcement swarms a home in the south end of Carson City – They apprehend the suspect.
On Thursday May 12th, U.S. Marshals contacted the Carson City Sheriff’s Office to report that a heavily armed escaped inmate was possibly in the Carson City and Douglas County areas. The inmate – Andrew Kristovich, 38, had escaped from a federal prison camp in Oregon. Information from the Marshals indicated that Kristovich was likely armed with a high powered assault rifle intending to engage with law enforcement as he tries to flee the state. They also advised that local law enforcement knew that he had been incarcerated for possessing weapons and drugs and was a suspect in a rape allegation in Washington following his escape.
Throughout Thursday and into Friday, U.S. Marshals, Carson City Sheriff’s Detectives and eight other local, state and federal agencies worked tirelessly to isolate a probable location of the suspect.
By Friday morning a likely location was identified but the information could not be confirmed. Due to the extreme risk to the public and law enforcement at 11:30am, an order was given by Sheriff Ken Furlong to deploy SWAT teams from both Carson City and Douglas counties. The area was populated with new homes and quite near the Northern Nevada Correctional Facility in the southern most area of Carson City. Warnings were issued by law enforcement ordering residents to shelter in their homes and lock their doors.
About forty deputies and marshals surrounded the suspected property where Kristovich was hiding out. It wasn’t long that Officers spotted Kristovich and took him into custody.
Sheriff Ken Furlong credited inter-agency support and cooperation for putting fugitive Andrew Kristovich so quickly back behind bars.
The Carson City Symphony Association will present a free concert featuring Music of the Andes on Saturday, May 21, at 2:30 p.m., at Empire Elementary School, 1260 Monte Rosa Drive in Carson City. The concert features Kantu Inka – Carlos and Julie Ocampa – who have been presenting Peruvian Andean music in the U.S. since 2003.
Kantu Inka’s performance will include an introduction to Andean wind, string, and percussion instruments, music, dance, geography, and clothing. They will be joined by about a dozen students of all ages playing zampoñas (Peruvian panpipes) and string instruments for a special rendition of “El Condor Pasa,” a well-known piece written in 1913 by Peruvian composer Daniel Alomía Robles. String parts were arranged for this project by Carson City Symphony musician, Bill Melendres.
This performance is the culmination of four workshops at which Kantu Inka shared their passion for Andean music with members of Carson City Symphony’s Youth Strings and Not Quite Ready for Carnegie Hall adult string ensemble. Each participant learned to play and care for a 17-pipe bamboo zampoña, hand-made in Peru.
This free performance is funded in part by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. For more information, call the Symphony at 775-883-4154.

Lane Closures on Koontz/Clearview Bridges Over I-580 in Carson City
Intermittent single lane closures will take place beginning May 16 on the Koontz Lane and Clearview Drive bridges over Interstate 580 in Carson City.
Periodic single lane closures will take place weekdays between 7 am to 5 pm May 16-27 as the Nevada Department of Transportation resurfaces the bridges. One lane will remain available over the bridges at all times, with traffic flaggers alternating directions of traffic.
The maintenance work will provide a smoother bridge surface. Nevada’s bridges were ranked some of the nation’s very best for the previous eight years. This year, American Road and Transportation Builders Association’s (ARTBA) analysis of 2021 U.S. Department of Transportation bridge inventory data (www.artbabridgereport.org) shows Nevada bridges as the nation’s best, tied with Texas and Arizona.
