GOODYEAR, AZ — Goodyear police say two men and a woman are dead after an apparent double murder-suicide.
Police say the incident occurred on May 20 at around 6:15 p.m. at a home near Sarival Avenue and Yuma Road.
Officials say they arrived on scene and found a man, later identified as Leonard Payne, 57, who had died from a gunshot wound.
Goodyear police say they later discovered two other potential victims, Payne's wife, identified as Deborah Powers, 59, and her son 29-year-old Matthew Oliver.
Officials say Payne is the step-father to Oliver who later died at a hospital after succumbing to his injuries.
It appears to be related to a domestic violence incident, but did not give further information, Goodyear police say.
The investigation is ongoing.
