Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Las Vegas police were called to the scene of an attempted murder-suicide Tuesday evening.

It happened around 6:15 p.m. in the 3600 block of East Lake Mead Boulevard near Pecos Road.

Police told Action News a 48-year-old man shot his 19-year-old daughter numerous times in the torso. He then turned the gun on himself.

Police said the man died but his daughter survived.

They were called to the scene after neighbors reported hearing gun shots.
