SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Authorities say a man apparently fatally shot his
estranged wife’s boyfriend in Scottsdale and then turned the gun on himself.
Scottsdale police have identified the men as 45-year-old Louis DesCoteas of
Scottsdale and 47-year-old Scott Jablonsky of Chandler.
A witness called police about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday to say someone had been shot at
the Broadstone Apartments where DesCoteas lived. Police say DesCoteas was found
dead in a stairwell.
Officers then responded to a shooting three blocks away where Jablonsky was
found dead in the employee break room of a business complex.
Police say Jablonsky and his wife separated recently and DesCoteas allegedly
was seeing her.
They say it appears Jablonsky shot DesCoteas outside the apartment complex and
then drove to the business where his estranged wife works and shot himself.
