“To wake up to this is just surprising because we lived Sahara and Nellis and saw this all the time but moving here it’s like ok,” Price explained.
Both the couple’s children are under 10 years old.
“One of the children did call 911,” said Lt. Ray Spencer, LVMPD. “At this point, the mother was deceased from a gunshot wound.”
Police believe the children’s father is a suspect.
“We don’t know if the mother was married to the husband, if it’s a boyfriend, girlfriend relationship or a husband-wife relationship,” Spencer said.
There were no previous calls to that address for domestic disturbances, policed said.
“Who knows if somebody could have heard something and it could’ve been prevented,” Price said.
The children’s father did live in the home. His whereabouts remain unknown but police are actively searching for him.
