CASA GRANDE, ARIZONA (ALBOENEWS) — Authorities tell the Casa Grande Dispatch that four people were shot and killed in a town located southwest of Phoenix early Thursday morning.
Though a person of interest is in custody, police do not believe the individual to be a suspect. They are currently seeking at least one other suspect and have deployed a helicopter in the search.
A witness described hearing loud arguing and screaming combined with multiple gunshots in a nearby home located in a residential area, followed by a car quickly leaving the scene. Another witness says he saw two men leaving the home where gunfire was heard before fleeing in a vehicle.
Local schools are currently in lockdown.
