The Latest: Police give ages of 4 found dead in Nevada home

HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — The Latest on the apparent shooting deaths of four people found dead in a burning home in the Las Vegas-area city of Henderson (all times local):

4:45 p.m.

Police say a 27-year-old man, a 35-year-old woman and two boys, ages 15 and 5, are dead in an apparent shooting murder-suicide at a home found burning in the Las Vegas-area city of Henderson.

The Clark County coroner didn’t immediately release the names of the people who police Lt. Kirk Moore said were found Thursday evening after officers arriving to neighbors’ reports of gunshots found the house on fire.

Firefighters quickly doused flames and discovered the bodies.

Moore said it did not appear that fire caused the deaths.

He did not disclose the relationship between the four. He told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that it appeared the man killed the woman, the two children and then himself.

The modest two-story home is in a residential tract in Henderson, a suburban city of about 300,000 people some 15 miles (24 kilometers) southeast of downtown Las Vegas.
