Authorities have released the identities of two people found dead in a Las Vegas home after an armed assailant fired a gun in the street, killing a police dog.
The Clark County coroner's office said Saturday that 31-year-old Branden Hughes and 46-year-old Felicia Simone Wimberly-Hughes both died of gunshot wounds.
Their deaths have been ruled homicides.
Police were called Thursday after reports that shots had been fired and a man was waving a gun on Fast Elk Street.
Metro Police officers deployed the K-9, a Belgian Malinois named Nicky, to subdue the suspect.
Nicky was subsequently fatally wounded.
Police shot the alleged gunman, who was hospitalized with unspecified injuries.
His identity has not been released.
The four officers involved are on routine paid administrative leave pending a review of the incident.
