NORTH LAS VEGAS -- North Las Vegas police officers are investigating an attempted murder-suicide at a home near Ann Road and Allen Lane.
According to police, an estranged couple got into an argument around 12 p.m. Saturday in a home in the 3500 block of Cantura Crest Court.
Officers say 67-year-old Ronnie Lee Boal chased his 23-year-old wife outside and shot her, leaving her bleeding in a nearby neighbors yard.
A neighbor found the woman bleeding and called 9-1-1. She was transported to UMC Trauma and is expected to recover.
When officers arrived on scene, they tried negotiating with Boal to put down his handgun. He did not cooperate and he shot himself in the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
