MESA, Ariz. -- Police have identified a man and woman who died in a shooting in a school parking lot in what's being called a homicide/suicide.

Police said 25-year-old Jonathan Vargas and 22-year-old Victoria Gameros were found in a car Sunday at Poston Junior High School near Adobe Street and Lindsay Road. Vargas was dead when officers arrived and Gameros was seriously wounded. She died at a hospital.

Sgt. Tony Landato said a neighborhood resident called police Sunday to report a vehicle with someone inside who appeared to be injured.

Landato said the couple lived together and had been together for over two years.

It's not known what led up to the incident but that Vargas was responsible for the shootings.

Landato said they had no connection to the school other than the location of the shooting.
