NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — North Las Vegas police say three people are hospitalized after a man stabbed his estranged wife and her teenage son and turned the knife on himself during a domestic argument.

Police say six other children were unhurt in the attack shortly after 3:30 a.m. Saturday at a home on Tonopah Street near Civic Center Drive. Police say the couple are in the process of a divorce.

Their names weren’t immediately released.

The 34-year-old man is accused of forcing his way into the home and stabbing the 32-year-old woman several times and stabbing the 15-year-old when he tried to come to her aid.

Police say the man stabbed himself before police arrived, and the relationship between the husband and children wasn’t immediately clear.
