(ReliableNews.org) – Millions of people visit Las Vegas every year for the casinos, shows, and buffets. The hotels in Vegas are popular for visitors and residents of Sin City. Sadly, for two individuals, it’s also where their lives ended.
On Tuesday, August 3, security personnel at the Palms Casino Resort tried to get into a room after two guests didn’t check out. They weren’t able to enter the room because the security lock was in use, so maintenance had to force it open. Inside the room were 2 black women, in their 30s, on the bed dead from gunshot wounds.
NEW: Las Vegas police homicide Lt. Ray Spencer said 2 Black adult females were found dead inside a hotel room near the Strip.
Prelim investigation indicates it's an apparent murder-suicide, Spencer said.

According to the police, they think one of the women shot the other, then turned the gun on herself. The women were apparently dating and from the city. Officers think the shooting took place within 12 hours of their bodies being found.
“We know that at least one of them was alive as early as 5 a.m.,” said Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Homicide Lt. Ray Spencer.
Police are not releasing the identities of the women, yet. The Clark County Coroner’s Office is expected to make their names, causes, and manners of death after the autopsies are completed.
