Nye County Sheriff Tony DeMeo
Nye County Sheriff Tony DeMeo speaks to the press, giving preliminary information on the gunfight and shooting of one of his deputies Sept. 19.
After a sleepless night, the Nye County Sheriff's Office (NCSO) called an afternoon press conference Sept. 19 to release preliminary details of the gunfight and subsequent shooting of Dep. Eric Murphy at Terrible's Lakeside RV Park approximately 12 hours earlier.
In addition to members of the Pahrump press, the major Las Vegas television stations were present with satellite trucks to broadcast Sheriff Tony DeMeo's statement. The training room at the NCSO was jammed with video cameras. Cords to power the half-dozen microphones in front of the podium snaked in a tangle covering the floor."
