LAS VEGAS, Neveda-- Police say a man has died after he was shot in his home during a Las Vegas crime spree that included a carjacking and two home invasions. One of the suspects is also dead.

Las Vegas police say the spree began about 6:45 a.m. Tuesday, when a man and a woman carjacked a freeway service vehicle that had stopped to help them.

Authorities say the armed duo ended up in a neighborhood where they entered a home, stabbed a woman and shot the man who later died.
