A standoff between Las Vegas police and a naked man with a gun ended with police firing a single shot at the man, who clearly was not in a good head-space as he was brandishing a gun, naked, in broad daylight. The situation looked like it was headed for a peaceful resolution until the naked man, who had dropped his gun and was approaching a K-9 officer with his hands up, appeared to get spooked by the dog barking and ran back towards his gun.

Obviously, the police need to be careful when dealing with armed, crazy, naked people but Captain Birthday Suit had quasi-surrendered until the loud, barking dog made him reconsider. Thankfully, the man’s injuries are not life-threatening, but still, a sad situation for all involved.
