The 36-year-old male was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Preliminary investigation indicates the subjects are involved in a domestic relationship where an argument ensued between them just prior to gunshots being fired.

The police say this is still an active and open investigation and no further details were provided at this time.

The name of the two people who died will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office after notification of the next of kin.

This is being investigated as the twelfth and thirteenth homicide for the City of Henderson for 2020.
