After requesting public assistance in locating Thomas Lars Domagala, a tip was received about him possibly being in Las Vegas. Mr. Domagala was located in the North Las Vegas area. There was an attempt to take Mr. Domagala into custody by local authorities. The preliminary investigation indicates that members of a multi-jurisdictional task force, led by the U.S. Marshals Service, attempted to stop a vehicle that Mr. Domagala occupied. After a short vehicle pursuit, Mr. Domagala fled on foot. There was an encounter between a task force member and Mr. Domagala a short distance from the vehicle. During the encounter, Mr. Domagala was shot and pronounced deceased at the scene. Two women were with Mr. Domagala at the time of this incident; both were taken into custody by the City of North Las Vegas Police. Both women were arrested and booked into the Las Vegas City Jail for a variety of charges related to this incident. The Sheriff’s Department is grateful for the assistance of the multi-jurisdictional task force and that the officers involved were unhurt. We would also like to thank members of the public for coming forward with information regarding this dangerous subject.
