LAS VEGAS, NV A shootout in Las Vegas left a police officer hurt and a suspect dead.

Police were investigating a report of a suspicious vehicle in front of a business on the 4100 block of West Tompkins Avenue. Police said the incident stemmed from a car burglary Monday, in which several cellphones were taken. On Tuesday, the victim tracked his iPhone to a pickup truck with a man sitting inside and called police.

Two officers responded to the scene around 4:15 p.m. and approached the suspicious vehicle. The officers talked with the suspect for several minutes and it became clear he wasn't going to exit the vehicle, police said. He tried to start the vehicle at least twice and refused orders to get out of the truck.

At one point, the suspect pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and began firing rounds at the officers, police said. One officer returned fire and struck the suspect at least once. It appears the suspect also shot himself.

He was found dead in the vehicle. His name hasn't been released.
