LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- This community hasn't had one a Coroner’s Inquest in more than two years and today Clark County commissioners say that trend will continue.
Instead, we will have an entirely new fact-finding process that looks into deadly police shootings.
News 3's Mackenzie Warren here to explain how the inquest will be getting a new name and format.
Victims like Rondha Gibson, whose husband Stanley Gibson, was killed by a metro police officer back in December 2011, spoke out at today's meeting.
Gibson, and other victim advocates, did not get the vote they were hoping for Gibson and the ACLU wanted the coroner's inquest process to stay.
The police fatality review will require an ombudsmen to represent the family of the victim that third party will be able to cross examine witnesses, but unlike the other proposal that was shot down: this process will not include as *many witnesses.
The ACLU's Allen Lichtenstein calls that a miss while commissioner Larry Brown says fault is not the end-goal.
