Reno Police Say Double Killing Appeared To Be Self-Defense

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Police say a man who fatally shot two men in a parking lot outside a northeast Reno bar last month appears to have been acting in self-defense.

The shooter, who has not been identified, was at the scene when police arrived at Mixers Bar at about 11:30 p.m. on April 28.

Reno police said Tuesday that detectives investigating the killings have been conducting interviews and watching surveillance video of the surrounding area.
