Boy to Las Vegas school officials: Mom, sister dead at home

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say the bodies of two people were found in a house after a 9-year-old boy told school officials his mother and sister were dead.

Investigators are questioning a man found covered in blood at the home.

Officer Marcus Martin told The Associated Press on Monday that police arriving about 9 a.m. found two people dead inside the house in the West Las Vegas neighborhood. Another child, a 4-year-old boy, was also inside, but he was not hurt.

No further details were available.

Martin says the 9-year-old boy told officials at nearby Hoggard Elementary School about the scene at the house.
