LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 68-year-old man is behind bars after police say he admitted killing two people at a Las Vegas assisted living home.

Authorities say they responded to the group home on West Washington Avenue about 4:40 a.m. Sunday after a resident reported finding two people beaten and bloody.

Police say they discovered a 59-year-old female caregiver and an 82-year-old resident dead.

Detectives say they found resident David Settle on his bed wearing only a diaper. Settle told authorities he had killed the two with a hammer before going to the store and buying wine, cigars and coffee.

Police say Settle didn't explain why he had killed the two. He told officials he later tried to cut and beat himself to commit suicide.

Settle was booked on suspicion of murder.
