   LAS VEGAS -- Authorities say a man chased and gunned down his wife outside a drug store and killed their three children at an apartment in Las Vegas before apparently shooting himself, leaving five members of a family dead.
   Police Lt. Dan McGrath says it appears the father killed himself in a bedroom, where he and the kids were found after 10 p.m. Wednesday. The children ranged in age from 8 to 15, and it's not clear when they died.
   Police say the woman was shot and killed about 7:30 p.m. as she ran screaming through the parking lot of a Walgreens store.
   McGrath says a relative of the husband contacted police about 8 p.m. after getting a text message from the husband suggesting he was distraught and suicidal at the apartment.
