Authorities say they were originally called to the apartments at about 11 a.m. with reports of gunshots.

Arriving officers say they discovered a 39-year-old and a 33-year-old woman dead at the scene in an apparent shooting, with a 16-year-old girl also suffering a gunshot wound.

The suspected gunman was then located by police armed with a handgun inside a nearby vehicle with a 12-year-old boy held as a hostage.

Henderson police say officers attempted to make contact with the man, later identified as 38-year-old Jason Neo Bourne, but when he held his gun to the boy's head, shots were fired with the situation becoming a shooting involving officers.

The 12-year-old was taken from the car by authorities but passed away due to his injuries, with Bourne also killed.

Police have not yet officially released the identifies of the victims. However, a Salt Lake City area Catholic school identified Diana Hawtmeh and her son Joseph Hawtmeh as two of the people killed in the shooting.
