LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say a man is dead and another man is behind bars after a shooting inside a Las Vegas home.

Authorities say a man and a woman called for help about 11:30 p.m. Thursday, but got disconnected and didn’t answer dispatchers’ calls.

Officers went to the home on Amolita Avenue and found 32-year-old Troy Martinez standing outside holding a gun. Authorities say he went inside, returned without the gun and surrendered to officers.

Police say they found a female and two small children uninjured inside the house, and then found a man’s body lying on the floor of the master bedroom. His name hasn’t yet been released.

Police say the victim had been visiting Martinez when they starting fighting.

Martinez was booked on suspicion of murder.
