(NSFW) LVMPD SWAT Officers Injured During Close-Quarters Battle With Armed Man

Published 1 years ago

Body camera footage released by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department (LVMPD), shows the moments SWAT officers exchanged fire in a close quarters gunfight, while serving a search warrant for a man wanted on murder charges.


On January 10th, 2022, LVMPD SWAT arrived at an apartment located near Nellis Boulevard and Vegas Valley Drive at approximately 5 a.m., where they began actively commanding the occupants of the apartment to come out and that a search warrant was being served. Officers were actively looking for 23-year-old Wattsel Rembert, who on November 18th, 2021, shot and killed a man during a verbal disagreement.


As shown in the body camera footage, SWAT officers breached the front door to the apartment, where a man, later identified as 19-year-old Isaiah Tyree Williams, was sleeping on a nearby couch. Seconds after entry, Williams is observed drawing a handgun and firing 18-shots at SWAT officers, striking two of them with multiple shots. SWAT officers ultimately overcame Williams, after returning fire, and fatally wounding him.


The first body camera footage is from Officer Kerry Kubla, who was reportedly shot in both arms and in the leg. He is expected to have a long road to recovery at this time. Additionally, the other SWAT officer observed exchanging gunfire with Williams, Officer Brice Clements, was wounded in the arm. He was treated at an area hospital and released later that day.


Reports have indicated that at the time of the officer involved shooting, Rembert was not located in the apartment. Rembert was located at a secondary location and has since been charged with the following: discharging a gun into an occupied structure, damage to a vehicle, carrying a concealed dangerous weapon without a permit, discharging a gun/other weapon where a person might be endangered, and open murder.


Despite the misidentification of the suspect, it appears in the footage that Officer Kubla only exchanged one round with Williams, only in response to Williams opening fire at the officers. This case may head into a grey area of Williams "standing his ground" against the invasive SWAT officers; however an active search warrant at the apartment may say otherwise due to the circumstances of the situation.


Let us know what you think in the comments below. Do you think this is heading into a grey area for "standing his ground"? or do you think this is justifiable through the search warrant itself? Over the past few years, we have witnessed some questionable circumstances of "stand your ground". For reference, a few controversial cases are the Marc Wilson case and the obvious, Kyle Rittenhouse case. Give them a look and let me know in the comments below what you think.
