(Las Vegas, NV) –The shooting on Esther Way in Boulder City is still fresh and residents have yet to be provided answers as to why it happened.
Lt. Hans Walters took his own life Monday, but not before killing his wife and son and setting fire to their home.
One Boulder City resident, John, has lived in Boulder City since 1974. “This has never happened before in Boulder City. Not in 38 years here. This is so tragic. I know there is an occasional murder, every five or ten years but nothing like this has ever happened.”
A makeshift memorial was placed near the mailbox as a reminder to the horrible tragedy that took three lives too soon.
Walters, 52, was hired by L.V.M.P.D.in 1991.
