Deaths of man, woman likely homicide-suicide TUCSON A man and woman died early Tuesday in what police believe was a homicide-suicide. Police officers responded to a report of a shooting and found a wounded 42-year-old woman outside a Tucson residence. She was pronounced dead shortly after being taken to a hospital, police said. A suspicious vehicle was spotted by police a short time later. There was a brief pursuit, which ended when the man drove back to the scene and drove his car into a lot next to the victim's residence, police said. Officers then heard a shot and found the man dead of a self-inflicted wound. Investigators said the man and woman apparently knew each other but their exact relationship wasn't immediately determined. The victims' names were not released. 2 homes, 3 vehicles lost to possible arson TUCSON Three vehicles and two mobile homes were destroyed in a fire south of Tucson, authorities said. No one was hurt in the blaze, which apparently started in a dune buggy that was parked between the two mobile homes, said Capt. Corey Reed of the RuralMetro Fire Department. "It's looking like arson right now," said Reed, who didn't have a damage estimate. He said both homes were engulfed when the first of 30 firefighters arrived. Authorities said they didn't know how many people were displaced. ' Compiled from reports by The Arizona Republic and Associated Press.
