MESA, AZ - Police are questioning a man after his girlfriend died Thursday morning in central Mesa.
Witnesses said they saw a man and woman fighting near Mesa Drive and 2nd Avenue around 11:30 a.m.
They then saw the woman run across the street and collapse in a neighbor's front yard.
Two neighbors ran over to the woman and tried to save her.
"She had a gash on her neck. I took my shirt off to stop the blood," said Lawrence Gallegos.
"I started chest compressions, but the more I did, the more the blood came out. She was gone, she was gone just boom like that," said Jean Banks.
Police said the woman was 24 years old and her boyfriend is 35.
Officers took the woman's boyfriend into custody as soon as they arrived.
Authorities said they took him to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries sustained during the fight.
They are not releasing the victim or her boyfriend's name at this time.
There is no word on what, if any, charges the man may be facing.
