The bodies of a man and woman were found in a Summerlin apartment Saturday after the man killed the woman and shot himself days later, Las Vegas police said.
At around 11 a.m. Saturday, a relative from another state called the Las Vegas police to apply for a social check for the couple after not hearing from them in a week. This was announced by the Homicide Superintendent of the Metropolitan Police Department, Lt. Ray Spencer, during a press conference outside the scene on Saturday afternoon. When officers arrived at Falling Waters Apartments, 1350 N. Town Center Drive, a noticeable odor came from their apartment.
The man and woman, who were in their fifties, were both found dead with gunshot wounds, Spencer said.
“She was killed a significant length of time before he died,” he said.
Spencer said the family had “financial and medical” problems recently, but the police had not received any reports of domestic violence involving the couple in the past 10 years.
The man and woman are identified by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.
