LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say a 21-year-old man shot and killed his wife and two other people at a Las Vegas apartment complex before turning the gun on himself.

Authorities said the gunman was in extremely critical condition Wednesday after the shooting, which happened around 10:15 p.m. Tuesday.

Officers say the three victims were found on an outdoor walkway. They included the man's 33-year-old wife, an 18-year-old woman believed to be her stepdaughter, and the younger woman's 21-year-old boyfriend.

Police say they found the suspect inside his apartment with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was taken to a hospital.

Authorities say there was a domestic dispute, and the victims ran from the apartment before they were shot. The motive for the shooting is under investigation.

No names have been released.
