Date for First Coroner's Inquest Since Overhaul Set
Crime

LAS VEGAS -- A coroner's inquest date concerning the officer involved shooting death of Benjamin Bowman has been set.

The June 29th hearing is the first that will happen after a major overhaul of the inquest system was made. A new ordinance revised the inquest hearing process, establishing an ombudsman to represent the decedent's family.

The 22-year-old was shot by Las Vegas police on November 15, 2010. Bowman was allegedly involved in a robbery at the P.T.'s Pub on Nellis Boulevard before he was shot by officers.
