A woman who was shot by her husband Wednesday night has died of her injuries, Las Vegas police said.

Investigators believe the man shot his wife multiple times in an apartment complex on the 2700 block of West Serene Avenue, near Silverado Ranch and Las Vegas boulevards, before he shot and killed himself, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Joey Herring said Wednesday.

The woman was taken to University Medical Center in critical condition, where she later died, police said.

Investigators believe the two were in an argument before the shooting, police said Thursday.

The Clark County coroner’s office had not identified the man or woman as of Thursday.
