Las Vegas Startup Gains Popularity With Romo

LAS VEGAS -- There's a little fellow called Romo who roams around The Ogden residential complex in downtown Las Vegas and, no, he's not named after the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.

What he is, though, is a clever smart phone-driven robot that weighs less than a pound and is less than five inches long and four inches wide. Don't let that fool you. This gadget, which moves on oblong tread that makes it look like a miniature tank, can dance to music and turn 360 degrees on a dime. There's more.

A smart phone can be programmed to operate Romo such that it can provide the human operator with a view inside a home, even if the user is thousands of miles away. That's right. An operator armed with another smart phone, tablet or laptop in Boston can maneuver Romo in Las Vegas. When used as a toy Romo can give a grandparent the ability to play with a grandchild in another state or even in another country.

Student Tells School Workers His Mom, Sister are Dead

LAS VEGAS -- Metro Police are investigating a double murder at a home on Robin Street near Rancho Drive and Washington Avenue.

According to police, a 9-year-old boy showed up at Hoggard Elementary School and told authorities that his mother and sister were dead. When officers went to investigate, they found a woman and girl dead inside the home. The bodies were found just before 9 a.m.

"I hear boom, boom, a couple of shots, and that was it," neighbor Lucinda Griffin said.

Griffin lives two doors down from the house where the murders happened. A neighbor alerted her to the unfolding tragedy.

"He said, 'Cinda wake up, something happened to Arturo, wake up. Cinda get up.'  I put on my pajamas and walked out the door and by the time I got there, helicopters were going, police were coming in," she said.
