KINGMAN, Ariz. – Bullhead City police, tasked with investigating a Thursday Kingman police shooting which killed a suspect, have identified three officers involved.
Detective Dennis Gilbert, 57, remains in serious but stable condition at the hospital.
Gilbert and 27-year-old detective Nicholas Schmitz have been placed on paid administrative leave, which Bullhead City PD said was customary in any instance of a shooting in which officers are involved.
Lieutenant James Brice, 58, had a bullet pass through his clothes but he was not injured as the officers were wearing tactical gear while serving a search warrant.
Jeffrey Clair Cave, 53, was killed in the shootout, which stemmed from a stolen firearm warrant.
According to police, the gun Cave used to shoot at officers was not the gun involved in the warrant.
