Two men dead in murder-suicide, police say

A gunman killed a man and then turned the gun on himself early Saturday in a central Las Vegas apartment, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.

The shooting was reported at 12:11 a.m. in a complex located in the 3000 block of South Decatur Boulevard, near Pennwood Avenue.

Police said they found both men — both of whom died at the scene — had been arguing before the shooting.

The Clark County coroner’s office will release their identity at a later time.
