Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Two men are dead in an apparent murder-suicide that happened inside a home near Rancho and Alta on Wednesday.
Investigators say it all started when a gun-weilding man knocked on the door of a home in the 2000 block of Sunland Avenue.
The man was the estranged husband of a woman inside. The woman answered the door, and her estranged husband discovered she was there with her children and another man.
The woman grabbed her children and left the home as a fight escalated between the two men.
That's when police said the gun-weilding estranged husband shot the man inside before turning the gun on himself.
Police officers and SWAT officers rushed to the scene and eventually made entry into the home. They discovered the two men dead inside.
The area remained shut down into the evening as detectives investigated the circumstances of the incident.
