Killed – Southaly Ketmany (Las Vegas, NV)

Southaly Ketmany

Authorities say the intruder who barricaded himself inside a south Las Vegas home after being found in only his underwear has died from wounds sustained from a police-involved shooting.

The Clark County Coroner’s office confirmed a death as a result of the incident that happened Tuesday but did not release the name of the person killed.

The death stemmed from a standoff Tuesday between police and a suspect at a home on Crystal Drive, near Las Vegas Boulevard and Pebble Road, which ended at about 8:30 p.m. with an officer-involved shooting.

According to reports, on July 23, a Las Vegas resident arrived at his home on the 9000 block of Crystal Rock Circle, near Pebble and Gillespie, to find a stranger, Ketmany, sitting on his couch watching television and holding a knife.

The resident called police, who ultimately confronted Ketmany inside the home. Ketmany died later that night from injuries sustained during that confrontation. Ketmany, who lived in Sacramento, Calif., was visiting Las Vegas with family and friends and then went missing a few days before the fatal confrontation.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Dead – Dean Knudtson (Racine, WI)

Dean Knudtson

PLEASANT PRAIRIE — A 42-year-old man reportedly shot the man dating his ex-wife in Pleasant Prairie, then committed suicide in Pritchard Park on Tuesday night, according to Pleasant Prairie police.

Dean L. Knudtson reportedly shot Michael Darracott, 44, multiple times in a Pleasant Prairie neighborhood, then drove to Racine, where he contacted 911 before eventually turning a gun on himself, according to police. Darracott survived the Pleasant Prairie shooting but remained in critical condition as of Wednesday night.

The Pleasant Prairie Police Department received a 911 call for a subject who had been shot in the 9200 block of Cooper Road in Pleasant Prairie at 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, according to a news release from that department.

Darracott had been shot multiple times, according to police. Pleasant Prairie Rescue transported him to St. Catherine’s Hospital and, due to the serious nature of his injuries, he was transported by Flight For Life to Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa.

The suspect, Dean L. Knudtson, 42, of Salem, was located shortly after the incident at Pritchard Park in Racine. He called 911 advising authorities of his location and what he did, and shot himself in the head as law enforcement arrived, according to Pleasant Prairie Deputy Chief Dave Mogensen. Knudtson was pronounced dead at the scene.

Darracott was dating Knudtson’s ex-wife and had been for some time, Mogensen said.

“(Knudtson) got divorced 10 years ago,” Mogensen said. “There is nothing at all that indicated any record of problems between these people. We have no past complaints or restraining orders involved here.”

According to court records, Knudtson’s ex-wife filed for divorce in April 2003. While discussing custody of their three minor children during a court appearance in May 2003, his attorney reportedly stated Knudtson did not want to be divorced, filed for a motion to dismiss and didn’t see “any reason why either party should have to move out of the home,” records said.
