Scottsdale Police say they found two dead adults and two dead children Friday afternoon in a house near 103rd Place and Sutton Drive.
Police described the investigation as being in its “very early stages,” but noted that “We know that a gun was used and the incident appears to be isolated to the one residence.”
The central Scottsdale neighborhood abuts the CAP Canal and sits at the edge of the McDowell Mountains, where the median home price tops $400,000. It’s across Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard from iconic Taliesin West.
Seven residents in eight there are white, drive alone to work, and didn’t move last year. Two-thirds of all homes are owned, not rented.
