Las Vegas police said they had been called to the residence at least once before — and that a woman there was a victim of domestic violence and had a restraining order against her husband, KSNV-TV reported.

But on Thursday, her husband was on the property and called out to the woman from inside a backyard shed, police told the Review-Journal.

She met him inside where he threatened her with a gun, police added to the paper, recounting details from her 911 call.

But police believe the woman, who’s in her 30s, may have grabbed a gun of her own — because she shot her husband.

It’s unclear both if the restraining order against the husband was still active and why he was on the property, but police told KSNV they’re investigating the homicide as self-defense.

“Any time a person is threatened or if they are threatened with a firearm, that person does have the right to defend themselves,” Lt. Ray Spencer told the station.


What happened to the husband?

The husband, who later died at a hospital, was identified by the Clark County Coroner’s Office as 40-year-old Michael Anthony Garcia of Las Vegas, KSNV said.

The cause of death is a gunshot wound to the chest, the coroner’s office told the station, and the manner of death is a homicide.

What else do we know?

The woman’s teen daughter was inside the house during the shooting, was not a witness to the shooting, and was not injured, the Review-Journal reported.

Officers had trouble entering the property, the paper added, and need bolt cutters and other tools to get past the gate. In addition, animal control officers had to handle three dogs prior to officers entering the property, the Review-Journal noted.
