UPDATE, May 29 | The Clark County Coroner's Office has identified the victim killed as Warren Spielmann, 53.

Spielmann died of multiple gunshot wounds, and his death has been officially ruled a homicide.

ORIGINAL | The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is investigating a shooting at a house where a father was killed, a mother was wounded and an injured 15-year-old told neighbors there had been gunfire inside.

Homicide Lt. Ray Spencer said Thursday that detectives were sorting through differing versions of what led to gunfire about 10:30 a.m. at a home in a western Las Vegas residential neighborhood known as The Lakes.

Spencer told reporters it appeared the teen shot his dad in the garage and shot his mother in the house, where she used another gun to return fire.

The names of the people involved were not immediately made public.

Spencer said the father was shot in the head, the mother was shot in the abdomen and the son was shot in the lower abdomen.

The woman and teen were taken to University Medical Center, where police said they were expected to survive.

Spencer says at least two handguns were used in the shooting.
