Police say two people are dead after a crash and shooting near a Mesa freeway early Tuesday morning.

Multiple law enforcement agencies responded to the scene at Loop 202 Red Mountain and McKellips Road in the far East Valley.

According to information at the scene, a husband, Christopher Wright, reportedly shot and killed his wife, Nasbah Laverne Wright, and another man, whose truck collided with the couple's car.

Police said the man's name is being withheld until his relatives are notified.

Video from the scene showed bullet holes in the doors of at least one of the cars involved.

Police say Laverne initially called 911 from a residence early Tuesday morning, but that the people involved had left by the time officers arrived. Police then got another call from the woman about another incident involving her husband.

Wright, 38, has been charged with two counts of first degree murder.
