Murder/Suicide Suspect Identified

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police have identified a man found dead in a
Las Vegas home after a standoff in which a police officer was shot in
the arm and a woman was killed.

Police said Sunday they believe 32-year-old Allen Meister shot a
woman before shooting himself Saturday morning.

Authorities said they were called to the scene by a woman in
Long Beach, Calif., who said 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.

Authorities say the officer's injury was not life threatening.
