Arrest report released on father accused in deadly family attack

LAS VEGAS - Marcus Maddox, the man accused of killing his 12-year-old daughter, stabbing his 15-year-old son and beating their mother, called 9-1-1.

According to the arrest report, it appears the call was made after the attack on the children's mother at the Seigel Suites on E. Craig Road Sunday evening around 6.

The report said, Maddox, 30, was asked if he needed police, medical or fire and he replied, "We need all of the above." When asked what happened, he said, "We have a woman truly beaten and a man shot in the head."

According to the report, the 9-1-1 caller could hear the man's voice state, "Baby, I'm (expletive) sorry." When the caller asked for apartment information, the man began to count, "1, 2" while breathing heavy. The man then said, "I love you baby," which was followed by what sounded like a gunshot.

When police arrived at the apartment they found Maddox suffering a gunshot wound to his head. The arrest report said the woman was severely beaten on her head and could not verbally answer questions but did nod yes when asked if the man had tried to commit suicide with the gun.

Police found the couple's two children on Monday around 11:20 a.m. at an apartment at a Budget Suites extended-stay motel on S. Las Vegas Boulevard near Wigwam Avenue. Both children had been stabbed. The 12-year-old daughter was dead. The 15-year-old son was taken to the hospital for treatment. Police say they were attacked prior to their mother's beating.

A GoFundMe account has been set up for the family.

Maddox is facing attempted murder with use of a deadly weapon, battery with substantial bodily harm, discharging a gun inside an occupied building, mayhem and possession of a gun by a prohibited person.
