LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police suspect a man fatally shot his ex-girlfriend and her infant, drove to a remote Las Vegas road and then shot himself inside his vehicle.

Las Vegas police say they received a call Friday night from a man worried because his girlfriend had not shown up for work.

The woman had said she was going to leave her child at her ex-boyfriend’s home before her shift.

Police found an excessive amount of blood at the ex-boyfriend’s home. They tracked down his car in west Las Vegas.

The bodies of a man, woman and child were in the vehicle.

Sgt. John Sheahan says police believe the people in the car are the missing woman, her child and her ex-boyfriend but are waiting on autopsy reports to confirm their suspicions.
