LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas/AP) — Las Vegas police are questioning a man found covered in blood at a home after a 9-year-old boy told school officials his mother and sister were dead.
Officer Marcus Martin tells The Associated Press that police arriving about 9 a.m. Monday found two people apparently dead or injured inside the house in the West Las Vegas neighborhood. Another young child was also inside.
It’s not clear if that child is hurt.
Martin says the 9-year-old boy told officials at nearby Hoggard Elementary School about the scene at a house on Robin Street.
Martin says the first officers to arrive reported finding two people down inside.
Attempts made by CBS Las Vegas to reach the Las Vegas Police Department were not immediately returned.
