Yuma County, AZ - Two people are dead following an apparent murder suicide in the Foothills. The Yuma County Sheriff's Office says they received a call reference a domestic violence situation at residence in the 11800 Block of Calle Gaudi in Mesa Del Sol. The caller reported her brother had informed her he had killed his girlfriend and was going to kill himself. This is information released by the Sheriffs Office.
When Deputies arrived a perimeter was established and a neighboring house was evacuated. After attempts to establish contact with occupants of the residence failed, a robot was sent in through the back door. The robot located a male subject inside the residence, deceased. Deputies entered and secured the residence while the robot continued ahead, searching room by room. A deceased female was located in another room of the residence.
A juvenile female was also found inside the residence with no apparent injuries. The juvenile was removed from the house and turned over to Rural Metro personnel on scene, and a victim's advocate from Amberly's Place.
Sheriff's Office Investigators are currently working to notify relatives and locate a family member to take custody of the female juvenile.
Both deceased subjects had sustained a gunshot wound. This case is currently under investigation but preliminary indications are that the female was shot by the male subject who then used the gun on himself.
