Man dies after Las Vegas carjacking, home invasion

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say a man has died after he was shot in his home during a Las Vegas crime spree that included a carjacking and two home invasions. One of the suspects is also dead.

Las Vegas police say the spree began about 6:45 a.m. Tuesday, when a man and a woman carjacked a freeway service vehicle that had stopped to help them.

Authorities say the armed duo ended up in a neighborhood where they entered a home, stabbed a woman and shot the man who later died.

Police say that as officers arrived, the carjackers went to a second home and shot a woman.

Officials say police and the male suspect exchanged words before the suspect was fatally shot. The female suspect was arrested.
