Man found dead at Mesa RV park; Mother is injured

MESA, Ariz. Police say a man allegedly shot and stabbed his mother before killing himself at a Mesa trailer park.

Officers responded to the Mesa Regal RV Resort about 10:30 a.m. Friday and found a woman in her late 40s with multiple wounds.

The woman was taken to a hospital, where she was listed in critical but stable condition. Her name wasn't immediately released.

Police say they found a vacant mobile home on the west side of the park with signs of forced entry.

A perimeter was established and negotiation attempts were initiated.

After a few hours without a response, officers entered the mobile home and found a man in his early 20s dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police haven't released his identity or a possible motive in the case.
