Parents dead and 2 toddlers hospitalised with gunshot wounds


A domestic-related shooting took place at about 6:10 am in front of a Las Vegas day care center which left a man and a woman dead on Thursday and their two young children hospitalized with gunshot wounds, Las Vegas Police say.

North Las Vegas police spokeswoman Ann Cavaricci said it was not clear who did the shooting, whether it was the mother or father who fired the shots or whether the 3-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy were shot deliberately,
The children were hospitalized and are in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.

Authorities have not identified the family and they said they aren't sure about the relationship of the dead adults.

Employees were at the Kids Campus Learning Center as it opened, but fortunately, no other children were around when the shooting happened in the front parking lot, police said.

The employees were the ones who called the police after they witnessed the shooting. They said the children attend the Daycare center.
"They opened the doors and brought the children inside, called 911," she said. "They did everything they could to make sure those kids were safe."
A child protective services agency is working to find relatives to help care for them.

Police said they don't believe there was an exchange of gunfire because only one weapon was recovered at the scene so no suspects are being sought.
