5 killed in domestic incident in Phoenix

PHOENIX — Officers responding to a domestic incident at a home in north Phoenix Thursday afternoon discovered five people killed inside.

Phoenix police responded to a call reporting the incident, which occurred near 44th Street and Bell Road, around 2 p.m.

Phoenix police say officers arrived at the home Thursday and SWAT team members used a megaphone to communicate with a person inside.

Three men and two women were among the bodies found inside, which were discovered by a Phoenix SWAT tactical robot.

Witnesses say they heard the sound of muted gunshots about an hour later.

Police say a woman called 911 before leaving the home and told officers it was a family dispute gone wrong.

It wasn’t immediately clear how many people fired shots, but police say they aren’t looking for any outstanding suspects.

The names of the five dead people and their ages weren’t immediately released.
