LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities say a man shot and killed by SWAT officers was a suspect in a double homicide.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Lt. David Gordon says the man was shot just before midnight Monday where officers were investigating a double homicide that happened earlier that day.

The suspect was taken to a hospital where he later died.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Cpt. Kelly McMahill says a SWAT team encountered the armed man while executing a search warrant on the house next door to the home where two men were found dead Monday afternoon.

Police will identify the officers involved in the shooting within 48 hours.

The Clark County coroner will identify the man after relatives have been notified.
