Officials are investigating a homicide with four victims in Casa Grande on Thursday morning. 

Police say the scene is near Pinal Avenue and McMurray Boulevard. They are asking the community to avoid the area. 

Neighbors tell ABC15 they saw two men go into an apartment complex in the area before hearing multiple gunshots and a woman screaming. They reportedly then saw the men fleeing the complex and called 911.

Casa Grande police say one person, a man, was found running through neighborhoods north of the scene and was taken into custody. A second person was also taken into custody Thursday afternoon.

Three schools were placed on lockdown in the area, but those lockdowns have since been lifted.

Police say at this time, it appears to be a domestic situation and there is no reason to believe the community is in danger. 

Weapons were reportedly recovered, but police did not give further information.
