Tucson police are investigating an alleged double homicide and suicide that happened on Tuesday.

Police responded to a call from someone who said multiple family members were unresponsive at a home near Glenn Street and Craycroft Road, police said.

When officers arrived at the home, they found three deceased people with gunshot wounds, officials said. They were identified as Timeki Regina Myers, 43, Aloria Bingham, 20, and Christopher Myers, 40.

After investigating and conducting interviews, detectives believe that Christopher Myers shot and killed his wife, Timeki Myers, and his stepdaughter, Bingham. They believe he then took his own life.

Officers learned that two children were inside the home but ran to a neighbor's house to call police.

The shooting is still being investigated by detectives.
