The Clark County Department of Family Services has removed a child from the home where police said an 8-year-old shot and killed himself.
The shooting happened Saturday night in the 9100 block of Wine Cellar Avenue near S. Durango Drive and W. Pebble Road.
Officers said the only person at home with Clayton Singleton when he shot and killed himself was his younger sister.
CCDFS opened an investigation and is working in conjunction with local law enforcement officers to investigate why Clayton and his younger sibling were home alone when he shot and killed himself.
The Clark County Department of Family Services says there isn't a prior CPS history for the child, the family or the household.
