Two Adults, Two Children Found Dead in Scottsdale Neighborhood

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.”

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.

Shortly before 2 p.m. Friday, Scottsdale police announced on Twitter that officers were investigation “a shooting involving multiple subjects at a residence” in the neighborhood.

Investigators first entered the house at 1:25 p.m.
