Coroner identifies man who injured daughter, shot self

CREATED Dec 18, 2013

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Authorities have identified a 52-year-old man who they say shot his daughter before turning the gun on himself.

Clark County coroner's officials say Rene Espinal died in the incident a little after 6 p.m. Tuesday at an apartment complex on East Lake Mead Boulevard, near Pecos Road.

Las Vegas police say his 19-year-old was taken to University Medical Center in critical condition, but is expected to survive.

Police Lt. Mark Reddon says it appears the two got into an argument before Espinal shot the young woman several times in the torso.
