Las Vegas - A patient at a pain-management clinic in Las Vegas shot and injured two employees before fatally shooting himself.

Las Vegas police spokesperson Laura Meltzer says the man was a regular patient at the Center for Wellness and Pain Care, and walked in seeking a same-day appointment on Thursday.

The man then turned the gun on himself and died at the scene before officers arrived.

Meltzer says one other person was injured in the melee, but not seriously.
