LAS VEGAS (AP) - A couple in their 80s has died in what Las Vegas police are describing as a murder-suicide.

Police were called Wednesday morning to Las Vegas Post Acute & Rehabilitation, a health care facility, after gunshots were heard in a room.

Metro homicide Lt. Dan McGrath says it appears the man shot the woman. The couple was married and the woman had been in the rehabilitation center since March. The husband was known to visit daily.

Police say an out-of-state family member is heading to Las Vegas to identify the couple.
