Additional Nevada National Guard soldiers will be in place in Southern Nevada in the wake of days of protests.  Governor Steve Sisolak issued the order Tuesday after a request from local leaders.

National Guard soldiers have already been in Las Vegas for weeks, running coronavirus test sites.  Over the weekend, two units were activated, one in the Northern part of the state, and another here.
