Boy tells school officials that mom, sister dead at Las Vegas home

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
