Police: Las Vegas Cop Killed Family, Self

Las Vegas officials said a local police officer killed his family and then set his home on fire before eventually killing himself on Monday. Police in Boulder City, a suburb of Las Vegas, received a call at 8:20 a.m. on Monday from a man who said he had killed his wife and son and was planning on setting his home on fire. While they would only confirm it was an “off-duty Las Vegas officer,” the house belonged to Lt. Hans Walters, 52, and his wife, Kathryn, 46. When police responded to the call, the man at the house had a shotgun and ignored officers’ warnings and entered the burning house. The coroner confirmed three bodies were found in the house.
