Three killed in northwest valley shooting, police say

Updated Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2013 | midnight


Two women and a man were killed Tuesday from apparent gunfire while another man is in critical condition at University Medical Center.

Emergency calls came from neighbors around 4:20 p.m., Metro Police Lt. Mark Reddon said. When officers arrived at the 2200 block of La Sombra Street, near Smoke Ranch Road and Jones Boulevard in the northwest valley, they found blood on the patio of a home and bullet holes in a window. Police entered and found the three adults dead from apparent gunshot wounds in what authorities believe was a domestic-related dispute.

SWAT was then called to the residence, Reddon said.

Detectives are on scene investigating the killings.

  1. Ted Kennedy's car has killed more people than all the guns in my house combined.

  2. The second Amendment does not allow the citizen to use weapons against anyone in the Government, including the argument that he feels his rights are threatened or being taken away.

    The 2nd Amendment was edited before being ratified by Virginia to use the word State instead of Country to preserve control over the 250,000+ slaves in the State.

    "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

    The words are 'free State', not a free Country. This Amendment could also stretched to mean that a State could act 'free' or independent of the Country but the Civil War clarified that meaning for all time.

    At the time of ratification, hundreds of substantial slave uprisings had occurred in the Colonies and the Caribbean and paranoia produced a fearful over-reaction. Blacks outnumbered whites in large areas, and the state militias were used to prevent and to put down slave uprisings. Punishment for such uprisings included gibbeting and burning the participants at the stake (punishments from the European Inquisition).

    The slave patrol in the South was changed to the more mundane term, State Militia, which was regulated by the State. Most southern men between ages 18 and 45, including physicians and ministers, had to serve on slave patrol in the militia at one time or another in their lives and they used their own guns.

  3. It's against Nevada law for an illegal to carry--but we keep hearing about violent crime for cash by illegals--murder (of Americans) on our streets by illegals who need rent money, again and again. Enforce our laws. Absolutely pointless to generate more laws when we don't enforce the ones we have.
