LAS VEGAS -- A man is dead after trying to break into a home in the northeast part of the valley. It happened at about 8 a.m. near Lake Mead and Hollywood Boulevards.
Police were called to the intersection of Piccadilly Drive and Brandon Circle to investigate what they originally thought was a stabbing. The incident began as a domestic dispute at an apartment complex and ended with a man dying at a house across the street. But police now say the incident was not a stabbing.
Instead, the man ran across the street after an argument and tried to get into house through the window. Police say the man did not know the elderly couple that was living inside and they did not know him.
Police say the man broke the window while trying to enter the home and cut himself up so badly while going through the window that he bled to death.
