Police: Man, child, two dogs found dead in Mesa home

An investigation is underway after a man and child were found dead inside a home near Brown and Ellsworth roads.

Police say just before 8:00 p.m. on April 14, a woman called 911, saying she was injured and needed help.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found the woman with a serious eye injury. She was transported to an area hospital.

"Inside the home, officers discovered the bodies of and adult man and a child. Two dogs were also found deceased," said Irene Mahoney of the Mesa Police Department.

We spoke to a neighbor who only had positive interactions with the family.

"Yeah, I'm just really.. no matter how it happened or what happened, it's sad. It's just sad whatever happened. Especially for the little kid. And he seemed like a super helpful nice guy. So I don't know," said Forest Moriarty.

Police say at this time, they have no reason to believe there are any outstanding suspects.

No names have been released in this case.
