Police: Retired Detective Arrested In Fatal Shooting At Home

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Las Vegas police department says a retired detective from the same force has been arrested in a fatal shooting.

Police didn't immediately release the retired detective's name but said she retired two years and is accused of fatally shooting her former son-in-law Monday at a home where he had visited his child.

Police say the woman's daughter was in a bedroom with the child after the visit and that the daughter called 911 after hearing shots.
