LAS VEGAS (AP) - Two people were found dead in a Las Vegas home
after police responded to a domestic violence report.
Police say a man wanted for murder out of California and a women
were found shot in the home in northwest Las Vegas. A police officer was shot in the arm during the Saturday morning confrontation.
Police spokesman Jacinto Rivera says officers were called to the scene by a woman in Long Beach, Calif. who told police that her sister was being battered by a suspected murderer.
After officers arrived, a woman and the man carried an 8-month-old baby out of the home and returned inside. The officer was shot as he retrieved the child.
Rivera says police believe the suspect then shot the woman before turning the gun on himself.
The identities of those involved were not released.
