Family of 5 in Murder-Suicide Died of Gunshot Wounds to Head

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say the Las Vegas man who went on a murderous rampage after a divorce filing killed his wife and three children by shooting them in the head.

The Clark County coroner’s office said Friday that 35-year-old Phoukeo Dej-Oudom and the three children all died of gunshot wounds to the head, ruling their deaths homicides.

The children were identified as a 15-year-old daughter, Dalavanh Ariel Dej-Oudom, and sons, Xonajuk J.J. Dej-Oudom, 14, and Anhurak Jason Dej-Oudom, 9.

The coroner also identified the man as 34-year-old Jason Dej-Odoum, who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. His death was ruled a suicide.

Police said the man gunned down his wife outside a business and killed their children at their apartment before shooting himself at the home.
