  1. The Reno man who was fatally shot by Sparks police last week has been identified as 23-year-old Jacori Shaw. On Feb. 23, Reno Police Department and Washoe County Sheriff’s Office were reportedly pursuing Shaw in the area of the 4900 block of Talbot Lane in Sparks. Authorities say Shaw was wanted for felony gun charges, and detectives wanted to question him about an unrelated homicide investigation. A press release stated Shaw resisted arrest and produced a concealed handgun after a brief foot chase, which prompted a Sparks detective to fire shots. (Reno Gazette Journal)
  2. Over 200 units of affordable senior housing are coming to Gentry Way in Reno in the next few weeks. Vintage at Sanctuary Apartments is a 55-plus community whose apartments will be available at or below 60 percent of the area median income ($50,000), said Reno City Planner Kelly Mullin. Rents will reportedly start around $940 per month for a 510-square-foot, one-bedroom, one-bath unit. (This Is Reno)
  3. Reno city officials and community members came together at Reno City Plaza Tuesday afternoon in solidarity with Ukraine. Ukrainian community members, along with Mayor Schieve, spoke at the event about the impact of last week’s Russian invasion. “We denounce this war, it’s so tragic,” said Schieve. “We also have many Ukrainian families that live right here in Reno. They’re really struggling.” (KOLO)
