On January 12, 2021 three bail agents in Sparks, Nevada (a suburb of Reno) went to arrest 19 year old Vincent Reynolds for failure to turn himself in. Reynolds had attended a remote out-of-custody hearing where he was sentenced to a 3-5 year sentence on charges he was found guilty of. The original charges included; attempted murder with a deadly weapon, battery with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed weapon, and possession of a stolen firearm. The judge advised Reynolds that he needed to turn himself into the county jail within 24 hours but he failed to do so.
The agents located Reynolds in the area of Glendale Ave. and 21st Street and started to approach the subject. Reynolds attempted to run and one of the agents attempted to deploy a taser. Reynolds then turned around and produced a firearm and fired at the agents striking one of them multiple times. The other agents were able to take Reynolds into custody and call for immediate help for the injured agent. The agent was taken to the hospital where he needed surgery and was listed in stable condition. Reynolds is currently incarcerated in the Washoe County Jail and is facing additional charges.
