NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - Police say they’ve arrested a 78-year-old man suspected of shooting and killing his 70-year-old wife.

North Las Vegas Police spokesman Aaron Patty said the man called police Monday afternoon to tell them what happened explaining that the two had been arguing before he shot his wife.

The shooting happened at about 1:30 p.m. at the couple’s home near Losee and East Lone Mountain roads less than a mile north of the Cannery Casino Hotel.

Names of the man and woman were not immediately available.
