According police, officer and firefighters were called to the 700 block of Calamus Palm Place, which is near west Galleria Drive and north Gibson Road on July 19 for a medical emergency.

Two kids found dead in Henderson

Police said paramedics found two children, a one-year-old girl and four-year-old boy of unknown race, dead at the scene. Homicide detectives are investigating the incident.

A neighbor told FOX5 that he was one of many who came out of their homes last night to gather around the caution tape and watch as first responders arrived on scene. He said he saw what looked like the children's grandparents and possibly other relatives at the scene Monday night.

"I was completely shocked. I was a bit nervous and scared, ya know? And once I did find out the news... something like that is hard to stomach," Nick Nguyen said.

Nguyen said he heard that officers were at the home the day before.

"So they were here Sunday. I don't know for what. My roommate told me they came here in the morning/afternoon, for maybe about like half an hour," Nguyen said.

Another neighbor said he was shocked by the news of his neighbors' deaths, since he said his gated community has consistently been safe and family-friendly.

"Pretty safe," Iean Cuenca said. "I didn't hear nothing, ya know, really bad."

Police said these are the ninth and tenth homicides for the city of Henderson in 2021.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to call the Henderson Police Department at 702-267-4911, 3-1-1, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or visit Crime Stoppers website. Tips directly leading to a felony arrest or an indictment processed through Crime Stoppers may result in a cash reward.

So sad. Poor kids. smdh

On another note, whatever they are paying you Maddie, it's not enough. You have the delivery of a much more seasoned pro and when you say you are pushing for more answers from the Henderson police, I 100% believe this to be the case. I haven't seen a journalist of your caliber in a long time, regardless of network or audience size. More power to you. I wish you all the best in your career.
