Henderson, Nev. – Members of the Criminal Apprehension Team (CAT) located and arrested 27-year-old, Larry Calvert who is identified as the suspect responsible for injuring two officers by running over one and striking them both with a vehicle on August 12, 2018. 26-year-old Marcella Levia who had been present during last night’s incident was also located.

On August 13, at approximately 5:20 p.m., the CAT team located the 1998 Toyota Camry used in last night’s incident on the 3000 block of Morning Wind Lane in Las Vegas.

Preliminary information indicates that during the investigation, an uninvolved person was seen leaving a residence in the Toyota Camry used last night. Police stopped the vehicle and contacted the driver who provided information indicating that Larry Calvert and Marcella Levia were within a residence on Morning Wind.

Both Calvert and Levia subsequently exited the residence at which time it was discovered that Calvert suffered from at least two gunshot wounds, and that Levia had apparently been run over by Calvert during last night’s incident and was also injured.

Both Calvert and Levia were transported to a local hospital to be treated for their injuries.  As of this release, Calvert is in surgery and Levia is listed in stable condition.

Calvert will be charged with two counts of Battery with a Deadly Weapon. At this time, there are no charges pending for Levia.

26-year-old Summer Waters is still considered a person of interest and police would still like to talk with her.

The 1998 Toyota Camry was impounded pending further investigation.

A booking photo for Calvert will not be available at this time.

The Criminal Apprehension Team (CAT) is a Federal Bureau of Investigation led, multi-jurisdictional fugitive task force. It is comprised of the FBI, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Henderson Police Department, and the North Las Vegas Police Department.
