Man accused of triple homicide at Las Vegas homeJanuary 30, 2013 @ 3:18 pm
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say a Las Vegas man who botched his own suicide after killing three family members will face murder charges.
Las Vegas police said Wednesday that 54-year-old James McCarty remained hospitalized with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head following the Tuesday afternoon shooting at a home in a residential community several miles west of the Las Vegas Strip.
Police say McCarty is expected to survive and will be arrested when he recovers.
Investigators haven't described a motive for the shootings, and the Clark County coroner hasn't released the names of the man and two women who died.
Police summoned to a report of gunshots found blood on the back patio and bullet holes in a window before SWAT officers entered the house and found McCarty and the others.
