PD: Woman dead, man injured in Phoenix shooting

PHOENIX - Police are investigating a shooting in north Phoenix.

Phoenix police Sgt. Steve Martos said a woman is dead and her boyfriend is at a local hospital.

Martos said officers were called to the residence near Greenway and Cave Creek roads after the man’s mother stopped by the apartment and found her son and his girlfriend inside.

Martos said the boyfriend has been unable to speak with officers to tell them what happened, but officers are leaning toward a homicide-attempted suicide. The man is expected to recover.

There was a weapon in the apartment and there are no suspects outstanding at this time, according to Martos.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
