HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Police say a teenager is jailed on a murder charge in the fatal shooting of his 19-year-old girlfriend in a suburban Las Vegas home.

Henderson police Officer Katrina Rothmeyer said Friday that 18-year-old Noah Hadley was arrested after officers were called late Thursday to a report of gunfire at a home in in the Horizon Heights residential development.

A statement says the woman was pronounced dead at Henderson Hospital.

Her name was not immediately made public by the Clark County coroner.

Henderson police did not immediately release details about the shooting.

It was not immediately clear when Hadley was scheduled to appear before a judge, and jail records did not indicate whether he had an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
