LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Nevada Highway Patrol trooper has died after he was struck and critically injured on a Las Vegas freeway by a vehicle that authorities say was driven by an armed carjacking suspect.

Gov. Steve Sisolak said 46-year-old Micah May died Thursday. May had been hospitalized since Tuesday after he was struck while deploying a tire-deflating device.

The driver was shot and killed by law enforcement officers on Interstate 15. He has been identified as Douglas Claiborne, a convicted felon from Hawaii.
