Protestors demand justice for Jorge Gomez during fact-finding review

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- The mother of Jorge Gomez, who was shot and killed by Metro officers after a protest in Downtown Las Vegas last summer, gathered with members of the community Friday. This came as county officials held an hours-long fact-finding review of evidence in the deadly shooting.

During the hearing, protestors rallied peacefully outside the Clark County Government Center, making sure their chants for justice were heard.

Justice for Jorge Gomez: It's a mission that friends, family and several members of the community are fighting for 10 months later. Protestors firmly believe Gomez did not deserve to be shot by officers 19 times.

They say he was running from police and chanted, "I'm running away -- don't shoot!"

Protestors are pleading for those four officers involved to be held accountable for killing Gomez... Read More

New manufacturing program unveiled at CSN

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Employers in manufacturing are having a tough time finding skilled technicians, but a new program being offered on the College of Southern Nevada's Henderson campus, will change all that.

This is going to be a big pipeline for employers in manufacturing to hire from, as well as providing necessary training for others looking to make a switch in careers.

“Many individuals who may be displaced, now have other venues and sectors to look at for employment and this is the fastest growing sector in Southern Nevada,” said CSN President Dr. Federico Zaragoza. “This will help diversify the economy and help people reconnect to employment if, in fact, the jobs they were in aren't coming back.”...
