LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say an armed suspect was shot to death after breaking into a Las Vegas apartment.

Authorities say officers investigating a possible shooting at an apartment complex just after 3 a.m. Saturday learned of another shooting.

The officers found a victim with non-life-threatening injuries and a suspect shot inside an apartment.

The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say a preliminary investigation indicates the unknown suspect gained entry and confronted two people in the apartment.

One of the victims then shot the suspect several times.

The suspect then shot and injured the other victim who was unarmed.

That victim has been hospitalized.

Police have not said if the victim who fired a weapon will be charged.

This incident is the 37th homicide for the city this year.
