LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Metro police are investigating an apparent murder-suicide after two bodies were found in North Las Vegas.

On Saturday around 4 p.m., officers responded to a report of two bodies in the 600 block of East Hammer Lane near Ann Road and North 5th Street. Officers found a man and a woman on the ground, both believed to be in their 40s, who appeared to have been shot, according to police.

Medical personnel pronounced the two dead at the scene.

Police said that the two were married but the woman recently separated from him. On the day of the shooting, the woman was bringing medication to his residence, and during the interaction, the man shot the woman and then himself.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is leading the investigation because the property where the bodies were found is in an unincorporated area of North Las Vegas.

Anyone with more information is urged to contact Metro’s homicide section, 702-828-3521, or To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers, 702-385-555.
