Man who shot wife before killing himself identified

The North Las Vegas man who shot his wife and then killed himself after a domestic dispute Saturday has been identified.

Ronnie Boal, 67, shot his 23-year-old wife at his home near Ann Road and Allen Lane around noon. A neighbor helped her escape the front yard, where she had collapsed.

When North Las Vegas police officers arrived, Boal shot himself in the head before negotiations began.

The woman is expected to live.
