A Las Vegas doctor was murdered in her office Monday morning and Metro detectives are trying to figure out why she was killed.

"Oh my God, please tell me no," sobbed the adult son of Dr. Edna Makabenta after he learned of his mother's murder.

The shooting happened around 9:30 a.m. at Dr. Makabenta's office located near Charleston and Rancho. Police say the gunman, 80-year-old Eliseo Santos, walked into an exam room and shot Dr. Makabenta in the head and then turned the gun on himself. He later died at UMC.

Another patient, Cynthia Marshall, told Eyewitness News, that Makabenta was a special doctor who was never too busy to spend time talking with her patients. "I just trusted her with my life," she said.
