Las Vegas police say the bodies of two people were found in a house after a 9-year-old boy told officials at a nearby school that his mother and sister were dead.

  Investigators say they're questioning a man found covered in blood at the home.

  Officer Marcus Martin told The Associated Press that police arriving about 9 a.m. Monday found two people dead inside the single-story house in an older, middle class neighborhood about eight miles north of the Las Vegas Strip.

  The boy's brother, who is 4 years old, was also inside but he was not hurt.

  Martin says the 9-year-old boy told officials at nearby Hoggard Elementary School about the scene at the house.

  No other details were released
