The Clark County Coroner's Office on Tuesday identified a woman in northwest Las Vegas and another in North Las Vegas shot to death over the Labor Day weekend.

Metro Police are investigating a Monday afternoon shooting of a woman, Denise Ebarb, who died from her injuries. The coroner's office said an official cause and manner of death were pending.

But police said the woman was shot inside a home on Brookfield Cove Avenue, near the intersection of Grand Teton Drive and Cimarron Road, east of U.S. 95. A man at the home was taken to University Medical Center with critical injuries, police said. Investigators said the shooting was a case of domestic violence.

In a separate case, a woman was found dead in an apparent murder-attempted suicide in North Las Vegas on Saturday after police responded to reports of a domestic disturbance in the 4900 block of Rancho Domingo Court.

North Las Vegas Police found 38-year-old Maria Herrera of North Lake Vegas, who had died of multiple gunshot wounds inside the home, authorities said.

A 46-year-old man from Cibolo, Texas, was taken to a hospital in critical condition with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.

The cause and manner of death has not been released by the coroner's office.
