The son of a lawyer who shot and killed a couple and himself during a deposition at a Summerlin law office is not a suspect in the homicide investigation, police said Tuesday.

Attorney Joe Houston shot and killed Ashley Prince, 30, Dennis Prince, 57, and himself during a deposition at Dennis Prince’s law office on April 8.

Dennis Prince was acting as co-counsel in his wife’s heated child custody case against her ex-husband, Dylan Houston, who is also an attorney and was represented by his father.

Previously, the Metropolitan Police Department had evaded the question of whether Dylan Houston was a suspect.

But in an email to the Las Vegas Review-Journal Tuesday, a spokesperson said he “is not a suspect in the homicide investigation.”

The Metro did not respond to questions about whether he was a suspect in any other aspect of the investigation.

The investigation into the fatal shooting of the Princes “is nearing conclusion, although it is not officially closed at this stage,” police said.

After the shooting, Ashley Prince’s lawyers argued in a motion that Dylan Houston “knew or should have known of his father’s intentions before committing these heinous acts.”

Houston denied the accusation.

John Jones, who represented Prince and currently represents his sister, previously said Houston sent his ex-wife threatening text messages, including one that allegedly said: “I don’t want to see you unless you’re in a coffin.”

Asked in April whether police were investigating Dylan Houston’s involvement in the shooting, a police spokesperson told the Review-Journal that the department was “continuing a thorough investigation into the homicides of Dennis and Ashley Prince.”
