Four people were dead – two women, a boy and a suspect – after a shooting on Tuesday morning in the Nevada city of Henderson.
Henderson police said officers received a call around 11 a.m. November 3 to reports of a shooting.
Police said at the scene they found two women, age 39 and 33, dead, and a 16-year-old girl injured from gunfire.
Officers then found the suspect, identified as 38-year-old Jason Neo Bourne, armed with a gun inside a vehicle holding a 12-year-old boy hostage.
Police said Wednesday they attempted to de-escalate the situation but Bourne held a gun to the boy’s head. Officers then fired at Bourne, killing him. The boy was pulled from the car and life-saving efforts were unsuccessful.
The 16-year-old girl was taken to a nearby hospital and was stable.
Police said a preliminary investigation showed that the suspect fired multiple rounds inside the car. He is believed to have lived at the apartment above the two women who were killed, but the investigation was still ongoing.
