Winston, on the other hand was taken to University Medical Center in Las Vegas, where he was rushed into emergency surgery.

He is reportedly doing well and expected to make a full recovery. 

Police identified the boy as seven years old at the time of the incident, but he is stated as six in Department of Family Services records, reported the Review-Journal.

The newspaper reported that Winston’s father, Willie Brandon Jr, filed paperwork in February 2017 seeking primary custody of his son.

He alleged that Rodriguez had ‘physically and mentally abused’ her two older children from a prior relationship.

In December 2017, they were awarded joint custody. 

Court records indicate that Rodriguez had a history of domestic violence.

She was allegedly arrested four times since 2015 on misdemeanor counts of battery constituting domestic violence, resulting in one conviction in January 2017.   

Both officers have been placed on routine paid administrative leave as the shooting is investigated.
