Arnoldo Sanchez, 78, who was renting rooms to the three victims, was charged with two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder in connection with the shooting, the release said.
The incident took place shortly after midnight when officers responded to a shooting on West Chicago Avenue. There, they found a woman lying in the driveway with gunshot wounds, the release said. The woman was later pronounced dead.
The suspected shooter — later identified Sanchez — was located inside the home, but did not immediately leave, prompting calls for a SWAT unit, KSNV reported. Sanchez eventually left the home after negotiations and was taken into custody.
Inside the home, officers found another woman, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
The identification of the three victims along with the cause and manner of death will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.
