Slaying, attempted suicide probed in northwest Arizona

The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a suspected attempted homicide-suicide incident in the northwest Arizona community of Mohave Valley.

Agency spokeswoman Trish Carter said deputies responded at 10:14 a.m. Tuesday to reports of shots fired at a business in the 1300 block of East Boundary Cone Road.

“Investigatons determined a person living at the park walked into the park office and shot a male subject,” Carter said. She said the victim was flown to University Medical Center in Las Vegas.

Carter said the suspect was dead when deputies on the premises found his body, apparently from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head.

Names of the parties and other details were initially withheld.
