Henderson Police Department vehicles in a neighborhood where officials say an officer was wounded and a gunman killed in a shootout early June 11, 2014.

Officials have released the names of four officers involved in a pre-dawn shootout Wednesday that left one Henderson man dead and one officer injured.

Henderson Police Officers Carlos Chorens, Timothy Donnelly, Troy McDermed and David Woolman were involved in the incident that took place outside a house in the Eagle Crest neighborhood, near Horizon Ridge Parkway and Iridescent Street, according to a city of Henderson release.

The officers responded to the scene at about 4:30 a.m. following a report of shots fired in the area. When they arrived, the suspect fired on them, injuring Donnelly. The officers fired back, killing the suspect.

Donnelly, who was treated and released from the hospital in good condition, has been with Henderson Police since 1994. Chorens has served since 2007, McDermed has served since 2006 and Woolman has served since 2002. All four have been placed on administrative leave, as is routine following an officer-involved shooting.

Henderson officials say there is no link between the shooting on Wednesday and the one that occurred on Sunday, which resulted in the deaths of a civilian and two Metro Police officers.
