Fallen Las Vegas Policeman Has Ties to Region
(LAS VEGAS, NV) – One of the police officers gunned down in Las Vegas on Sunday has ties to the region. Alyn Beck, 41, grew up in western Wyoming, and was a successful high school wrestler in Green River. Family members say Beck was devoted as a father, an active member of his congregation in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and loved woodworking. The suspects, who authorities described as anti-government conspiracy theorists, killed Beck and a fellow officer, before fatally shooting a concealed carrier at a Walmart store. The suspects then committed suicide.
