Officers summoned for a welfare check discovered the bodies about 10:30 a.m. in the 4400 block of Thompson Circle, near Washington Avenue and Valley View Boulevard, police said.

Further details on the deaths were not immediately available.

The Clark County Coroner's Office will name the deceased once their family is notified.
