Law enforcement personnel are leading a procession as the body of a slain Nevada Highway Patrol trooper is moved Saturday afternoon.
Trooper Micah May died Thursday after being struck by a car during a pursuit on Interstate 15 on Tuesday.
May’s body is being transported from University Medical Center to the Clark County coroner’s office.
The 46-year-old married father of two and 13-year veteran of the patrol was struck while attempting to deploy “stop sticks” intended to puncture a stolen vehicle’s tires on I-15 near Sahara Avenue, according to the Highway Patrol.
In the coming days, the agency plans to park May’s patrol car at Police Memorial Park, 3250 Metro Academy Way in northwest Las Vegas, so the public can visit and pay respects. A candlelight vigil is planned for 6 p.m. Tuesday at the park.
May is the 12th trooper to die in the line of duty.
