LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Police are investigating an apparent murder-suicide at an apartment complex in downtown Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officers responded to a 911 call from a neighbor that two people were dead inside an apartment at Fremont9 on 901 East Fremont Street, near 9th Street, around 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Arriving officers found a man and woman inside the unit with gunshot wounds. They were both pronounced dead on the scene.

The man is believed by police to be in his early 40s and the woman in her early 50s. Their identities and causes of death will be released by the Clark County Coroner's Office.

The neighbor who called the police and found the bodies told authorities that he heard the man and woman have some kind of fight on Tuesday. Investigators say that's the last day they were seen together.

LVMPD Lt. Ray Spencer says it appears they have been inside the apartment for more than two days.

Spencer says a call from the woman's employer prompted the welfare check.

Anyone with information can report it to authorities at (702) 828-3521 or email Homicide@lvmpd.com. To remain anonymous, call (702) 385-5555.
