Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Two bodies were found at a Las Vegas apartment complex Friday afternoon.

The call came in around 3 p.m. from the Mark 1 Apartments located at 1020 East Desert Inn, near Maryland Parkway.

Police said the deaths were the result of a murder-suicide. A man and a woman, both in their 20s, were found dead in the apartment.

Police said a welfare check brought them to the apartment; officers then found the bodies inside.

"It's usually a real quiet complex. Everything just goes smooth," said one neighbor.

The coroner hasn't announced an official cause of death for either the man or woman, but police said it does appear that a gun was involved.

The two people have not been identified.

Action News will post more information as it becomes available.
