LAS VEGAS (AP) — Five family members are dead after police say a father chased and killed his wife outside a pharmacy and killed their three children at a home in northwest Las Vegas.

Police Lt. Dan McGrath says it appears the father killed himself in a bedroom where four bodies were found after 10 p.m. Thursday at an apartment on Torrey Pines Drive. The children ranged in age from 8 to 15.

Police say the woman was shot and killed earlier, about 7:30 p.m., as she ran screaming through the parking lot of a Walgreens store off Lake Mead Boulevard near Jones Boulevard.

McGrath says a relative of the husband contacted police about 8 p.m. after getting a text message from the husband suggesting he was distraught and suicidal at the apartment.
