PHOENIX – Police say an elderly couple died in a murder-suicide Friday afternoon in a north Phoenix senior living community.
First reports of the shooting came in around 3 p.m. at LifeStream Senior Living in northeast Phoenix, located near Loop 101 and Cave Creek Road.
According to police, officers were called to the home Friday by the couple’s son after his father allegedly told him he was going to shoot himself and his wife. Responding officers found the man and woman dead inside the residence.
Sgt. Tommy Thompson said police were withholding the couple’s names until after officers notified family members who live out of state. Both the man and woman were 87 years old.
