Update on shooting incident at Adaline and North Curry

Carson City Deputy Involved in Shooting

Preliminary information indicates on February 22nd, at around 4:33 am, deputies with the Carson City Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a man in a highly agitated altered state attempting to steal catalytic converters near the intersection of Adaline Street and N. Curry Street.

Upon arrival, deputies found that the suspect, Luis Santana, a 21-year-old Carson City resident, had secured a hatchet to his wrist and was brandishing a machete, waving it in the air. Santana was also seen holding a lit “blow torch” and attempting to burn a parked vehicle as well as his own vehicle.

For over two hours deputies, including a member of the Mobile Outreach Safety Team, negotiated with Santana without success. Santana eventually fled to the 200 block of Adaline Street where he confronted a 66-year-old resident who was standing at his open garage door. Santana raised the machete over his head and approached the victim in a threatening manner. Fearing for the safety of the civilian a deputy fired at Santana striking him in the lower extremity.

Lifesaving emergency first aid was administered by deputies.  Santana was transported to Renown Medical Center where he is listed in stable condition.

Due to his injuries, Santana has not been formally booked into the Carson City Jail and no photograph is available at this time. Santana will be booked for the following charges: Assault with a Deadly Weapon Against an Elderly Person, Arson 3rd Degree, Arson 4th Degree and Obstructing a Public Officer.

This is an ongoing investigation. An examination of this incident is being conducted by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and Nevada State Police. Anyone who witnessed or has information in this case is encouraged to contact Detective Nadine Jenkins: njenkins@douglasnv.us or (775) 782-9926.

It is awarded each year to one or more Carson City students age 5 to 17 for instrumental music lessons.  The winners this year were selected from several well qualified applicants.
