LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A Las Vegas woman was arrested Monday in the suspected shooting death of her husband near Twain Ave. and El Capitan Way, police said Thursday.
About 11:01 p.m. on March 22, officers responded to the 9000 block of West Katie Ave. to a reported shooting inside a home. Arriving units found a man suffering from a gunshot wound. He later died on scene.
