LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- A source tells News 3 that Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson is 99 percent sure he'll file charges against a Metro officer for shooting and killing Stanley Gibson.

Gibson was killed in December during a confrontation with officers after a traffic stop.

Officer Jesus Arrevalo opened fire, killing Gibson, a war veteran who reportedly had mental health issues and was off his medication.

Chris Collins with the Police Protective Association, which represents local officers, says the organization stands behind Arrevalo.

Police say there was a misunderstanding between officers that night.

Metro said the plan was to take Gibson into custody and use bean bag pellets and pepper spray to do it.

But not all officers got the message, including Arrevalo, and Gibson was killed.

The district attorney’s office is not commenting. The officer is on paid administrative leave.
