LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say a Las Vegas man shot and killed a neighbor and snatched her young son before responding officers found the gunman and the boy dead in the man's home.

Police Lt. Dan McGrath says investigators don't immediately know a motive for the shooting Friday in a neighborhood south of McCarran International Airport.

McGrath says the dead woman's daughter ran to a neighbor's home, and officers responding to a 911 call found the mother dead at her front door at about 7:15 a.m.

Police retrieved a toddler from that house. The man and boy were found dead in the man's house two doors away.

No names were released.

McGrath describes the shooter as a man in his 40s who might have had disputes with the woman who died.
