  • Introduction to Video Content
  • Las Vegas police are currently investigating a triple homicide that occurred in a Southwest Valley apartment. The incident took place at the Rancho de Montana complex near Flamingo and El Capitan. One of the victims, a maintenance worker, was instructed by his boss to visit a specific unit in the complex. The police were alerted to the situation through a phone call from a man claiming to be bleeding from his head. Upon arriving at the scene, they discovered that the injured man was one of the workers at the apartment complex. As the investigation unfolded, it was revealed that the worker had been accompanied by a coworker on a welfare check, who was likely killed by one of the residents. The injured worker described witnessing a fight between his coworker and one of the residents, resulting in his own injury. The resident involved in the altercation has been identified and made contact with by the police. The other maintenance worker is believed to still be inside the apartment, deceased. Homicide Lieutenant Jason Johansson is leading the investigation.

  • Our other top story tonight, a triple homicide in a Southwest Valley apartment.
  • We do thank you for joining us at five.
  • I'm Denise Valdez.
  • And I'm Brian Loftus.
  • Now, one of the victims, a maintenance worker, was told by his boss to visit that specific unit.
  • This all happened at the Rancho de Montana complex near Flamingo and El Capitan.
  • Eight News Now reporter Ryan Matthey has been out the scene throughout the day and joins us now live with the latest on that investigation, Ryan.
  • Yeah, Denise, Brian, Metro Police says this all began with a phone call just after nine o'clock this morning, a man saying he was bleeding from his head.
  • The scene here, which has been active all day, revealing that he is a worker at this apartment complex.
  • Police telling me the coworker sent with him on a welfare check likely died by an attack from one of the residents who potentially already killed two others.
  • Sitting in back of the office with his shirt off, OK, and was holding it against his shirt was up against his head.
  • Bill, as he goes by, describing how he saw one of his apartment's maintenance workers trying to stop the bleeding.
  • Like a fight, actually, you know, two guys fighting, you know, but I mean, loud screams.
  • He says the maintenance worker emerged with an injury after an altercation with one of the residents.
  • I mean, he lives here and I've seen him go up the stairs to that apartment umpteen different times.
  • Metro police arriving to this complex shortly after nine.
  • The other maintenance worker we believe is still inside that inside the apartment right now deceased.
  • But Homicide Lieutenant Jason Johansson says the investigation broadened when they made contact with the alleged stabber.
  • After catching him on the street, they traced his origins back to this second story unit where three dead bodies were found.
  • Two men in their 40s and a female in her 80s.
  • Based on that information and based on the scene, it did appear that they were murdered.
  • Therefore, homicide was called.
  • One of the male bodies, a different maintenance worker than before.
  • Police say the two workers were sent on a welfare check by complex management to this specific unit.
  • When they entered, they were attacked with a sledgehammer.
  • Only one escaped.
  • As for the other two victims already there.
  • We do believe there's a relation.
  • I can't speak to what it actually is right now because we need to confirm who they are.
  • Now, police don't know why that welfare check was called or the relationship between those two or between the victims, the two victims in the room and the suspect.
  • They do believe, however, those three live together.
  • Currently, the suspect is in custody while that surviving maintenance worker is in the hospital but in stable condition.
  • For now, reporting live near Fort Apache and Flamingo, Ryan Mathey, 8 News Now.
