The man shot by police Wednesday inside a Henderson grocery store has arrest records in three states, Henderson Police said Thursday.

Jake Goldsborough, 36, remained in critical condition Thursday at Sunrise Hospital, a day after he raised what appeared to be a gun at Henderson Police SWAT officers in the Albertsons at 190 N. Boulder Highway and subsequently was shot.

Detectives later determined the weapon to be a pellet gun.

Keith Paul, Henderson Police spokesman, said Goldsborough was booked by proxy on three counts of assault with a deadly weapon. He has prior arrest records in Nevada, California and Washington, police said. Among his prior arrests was an incident in Henderson in 2003, when Goldsborough was accused of smashing the windows of a parked car, police said.

The investigation continues into why Goldsborough barricaded himself Wednesday in the bathroom of the grocery store.

The three officers involved in the shooting have been placed on routine paid administrative leave while the investigation into the shooting continues, Paul said.

  1. Pellet gun or not, it looks real enough. Justified shooting as far as I'm concerned.

  2. Justified shooting? You betcha.

    Good Job, Henderson Police! Thank You!

  3. I guess the big question is when is the victim's family going to sue and how much will the city of Henderson settle for?
