LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities in Las Vegas have identified a 35-year-old man dead in a double stabbing that apparently stemmed from a drug deal gone wrong.

Police say they responded to an apartment complex on Wynn Road at about 3 p.m. and found Velasquez's body. They also found another man suffering from a single stab wound.
Officials say the injured man was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
Police arrested 32-year-old Nerio Nava and booked him on suspicion of murder and attempted murder.
