NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - Police say a man and woman were
found shot to death in a North Las Vegas apartment following a
standoff with police.
Police spokesman Sgt. Tim Bedwell says officers were called to the apartment about 5 a.m. Friday on a report that a man in the home had pointed a gun at his girlfriend's head.
Bedwell says officers briefly met with the man before he fled into the home. Officers then heard several gunshots, some fired out of the apartment.
When the SWAT team entered the home hours later, officers found
the man and woman dead from gunshot wounds.
Bedwell did not immediately release the identities of the two people.
