Apparent murder/suicide in Las Vegas leaves mother and 10-year old girl dead, 9-year old boy reports at school

A 9-year old boy in Las Vegas walked to school and reported to his teachers that his mother and sister were dead.  When police went to the home, they found the boy's mother and 10-year old sister dead, and a father with a head wound.  A 4-year old was also home at the time.

From the article:

A 9-year-old boy arrived at school Monday with a grisly story: His mother and sister were dead at their home four blocks away. 
Minutes later, police found the bodies of a 10-year-old girl and her mother – along with a blood-covered father and an unharmed 4-year-old boy – in a modest home in a West Las Vegas neighborhood, authorities said. 
The five people belonged to a single family, police Officer Jacinto Rivera said. 
The man, who was hospitalized with a head injury, was not immediately identified as a suspect or charged. 
Police wouldn't immediately say how or when the slayings occurred, but Rivera said there was no immediate evidence of a break-in at the home or that a suspect was on the loose. 
One neighbor, Lucinda Jackson Griffith, said she heard at least one gunshot early Monday.
