North Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- North Las Vegas police are investigating after they said a father murdered his daughter and then killed himself Sunday morning.
It happened around 5:20 a.m. on the 4100 block of Hollis Street near Craig Road and Commerce Street.
Dispatch received a report of shots fired in the home.
When police arrived, they found 53-year-old Gregory Landis and 25-year-old Amanda Landis inside their home suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. They were both pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators said the murder-suicide stemmed from a heated argument. The father reportedly grabbed a gun and shot his daughter, then turned the gun on himself.
Two other family members were in the house during the incident, but neither suffered any injuries.
"We both went into shock because they were the nicest people we have ever met. They've been our friends for over five years," said one neighbor.
The official cause of death of the father and daughter will be released by the Clark County Coroner.
