SPARKS, NV - Sparks police are investigating a shooting that killed a man and wounded a woman Thursday morning.

Lt. Chad Hawkins says shortly before 8AM, they were called to 1032 H Street.

When he arrived, he found a man and woman, and police say he shot them, though the circumstances are still not clear to police.

The man was found dead in the house; the woman was found with gunshot wounds about a block away. Police say she is hospitalized with wounds they believe are not life-threatening.

No names have been released. Police say the shooter is cooperating with the investigation.

Sparks police say since the shooting, a resident named Anthony Burgarello, the owner of Burg's Bar on Victiorian in Sparks, has been getting threats. Police want everyone to know he has no involvement in this incident.
