"What we have is a family tragedy," said Lt. Dan McGrath, the head of Metro's Homicide Unit.
According to McGrath, the son had mental health issues and a history of violent tendencies.  McGrath said he lived a transient life and was staying with his parents.
"I don't know what to say other than, to express our condolences you know to the family for what they have to go through, what they've gone through," said McGrath.
People who live in the area are shaken. 
"It's just terrible, they were nice people," said Jim Carolla tearing up and shaking his head.

According to Corolla, the house was their vacation home.
"I'd say hello to them, I stopped and said hello about a month ago as I was coming back home, he was sitting out in front of his house in a lounge chair reading the paper," said Corolla of his last encounter with his neighbor.
Las Vegas police are still investigating.
