According to a report, a suspect lunged for an interrogation officer’s gun after the accused confessed for killing a two-year-old. The video of the man attempting to steal the gun from cop emerged in social media like twitter and also on YouTube.

Media reported that Terrell Rhodes, the suspect, had just allegedly admitted to hitting the toddler after he wet himself. Police told the Las Vegas Review Journal that Rhodes initially said the boy was kidnapped, but eventually drew a map to where the body was located.

The video showed that the accused was very emotional when the investigators entered. When they tried to calm the accused down, he lunged in to take the gun from one of the cop.

“Let me out of here,” he said. “I can’t go back.”

Several officers rushed in to the struggle and were finally able to subdue the accused and keep the firearm away from him.

Las Vegas police on May 11 announced the arrest of Rhodes in Amari Nicholson’s death. Amari was the son of Rhodes girlfriend.

The toddler was left in the care of Rhodes while the boy’s mother, Tayler Nicholson visited her mother to help her, according to the police.

Amari was reported missing on May 5 and his body was found on May 12, buried under a wall in a parking lot next to McDonald’s after Rhodes led them to the scene.

Rhodes was later indicted on murder charges in the case, and on attempted murder, assault and four counts of resisting arrest over his caught-on-video scuffle with cops.

According to the records reviewed by Revie-Journal show Rhodes had served time for robbery and burglary in 2017 and 2018.

He pleaded not guilty. He is due back in court in June 25 in the murder case, the outlet reported.
