Two children and two adults dead in Las Vegas murder-suicide

Two children were killed and a third was clinging to life after a man opened fire early Monday in a northeast Las Vegas Valley residence, also killing a woman and himself, police said.

The children are younger than 14, Las Vegas Police Lt. Robert Price said at an afternoon news conference. The victims were connected to the shooter, he said, without detailing the relationship.

The identities haven’t been made public.

A man went to the residence to check on his brother, discovered that people were down and called police, who responded to a home in a residential complex about 10 a.m., Price said.
