3rd victim ID'd in Vegas triple shooting

Posted: Updated:

Authorities identified the third person who died in a triple shooting that also resulted in the slaying of two others.

The Clark County Coroner's office said Linda McCarty, 62, died of a gunshot wound to the head as a result of a homicide on Jan. 29.

Las Vegas Metro police believe McCarty, Bobby, 41, and Bonnie Scherrer, 38, died at the hands of 54-year-old James McCarty.

Police said McCarty, who is Linda's husband and stepfather to Bobby and Bonnie, also may have tried to take his own life by shooting himself in the head.

All four were found with gunshot wounds at a home in the 2200 block La Sombra Street, near Smoke Ranch Road and Jones Boulevard.

James McCarty was transported to University Medical Center, where he is recovering. Police said he has been charged with three counts of murder with a deadly weapon.

McCarty is expected to be transported to Clark County Detention Center once he is cleared to be released from the hospital.
