Cause of Jonathan Justice‘s death…

The Esmeralda sheriff’s deputy found his van stopped on the side of U.S. 95 at mile marker 37 near Tonopah, but still within Esmeralda County lines.

Video shows the man get out of the van and point something at the deputies, and the deputies fire at him. The man sat back up and pointed the item at them, leading the deputies to fire again, Boruchowitz said.

The Nye County deputy, identified as Jonathan Justice, fired about 13 rounds. Justice’s vehicle dashcam video captured the shooting, though Boruchowitz said his body camera’s battery died prior to the incident.

The suspect, later identified as Ingmar Von Strandberg, 30, of Las Vegas, was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities learned that Von Strandberg was holding a pellet gun designed to look like a SIG Sauer P365 handgun.

The Nevada Department of Public Safety’s investigations division is looking into the shooting, while Esmeralda County sheriff has primary jurisdiction.

It’s the first deputy-involved shooting for the Nye County Sheriff’s Office for 2021, according to Boruchowitz.
