A Las Vegas woman died after police say her son stabbed her in their home in the 6300 block of West Haleh Avenue this morning.
The woman called police at 9:53 a.m. stating her 27-year-old son had attacked her, Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Jacinto Rivera said.
When officers arrived at the home near Jones Boulevard and Pyle Avenue, the suspect was gone and the woman was transported to University Medical Center, where she later died.
The identity of the woman was not released by the Clark County coroner’s office.
The suspect was still at large late morning, police said.
Police said motives for the slaying are unclear.
The woman told authorities her son is mentally ill, police said.
