LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say a man shot three people before turning the gun on himself in an attack that left two dead and two wounded.

A police news release says officers arriving at the Las Vegas home found the wounded suspect armed with a gun and arrested him without incident.

Two people were found dead inside the home, while a small child was found seriously wounded.

Police say 38-year-old Manuel Mata III was charged with murder and attempted murder.

He had been living with the victims, but police didn't provide anything about what prompted the gunfire.

Police say both the child and the suspect have been hospitalized and are expected to survive.

The victims' names and other details weren't immediately released.
