PD: Murder-suicide in Mesa apartment

Mesa police are investigating two deaths that officials are calling a murder-suicide.

Police spokesperson Sgt. Tony Landato said they responded to the home on the 900 block of W. Main Street for a shooting call.

"Upon arrival, they had to force entry into an apartment to render aid to two obviously injured subjects inside. The two individuals were pronounced deceased at the scene," he said.

There was a handgun at the scene, Landato said.

A black male and black female in their early 20's were found dead.

Officials said they had  4-year-old child, who was brought to a neighbor's house by the dad an hour before the police were called. 

Police say there are no outstanding suspects.
