Arizona man, teen boy dead in apparent murder-suicide

Arizona police found a 40-year-old man and a teenage boy dead of gunshot wounds on Saturday and say they believe the man shot the boy and then himself, KOLD reports.

Tucson police responded at about 12 a.m. to a call from another man who said he was on his way to check on a man and a boy who lived at a home on the eastern side of the city after the man had not responded to text messages and phone calls.

Police said they got no answer at the door when they arrived and began to handle the incident as a barricade situation.

After obtaining a search warrant, SWAT teams entered the home and found both subjects dead of obvious gunshot wounds.

Police identified the man as Phillip Emmanuel Foye but have not identified the boy. They said the two lived at the home with an adult woman who was not home when the shooting took place.

A Phillip Foye is listed on Facebook living in the same area of Tucson as this incident. Photographs show an active outdoorsman, often engaged in activities with a young boy. The page says he is originally from North Carolina and divorced.

Police said detectives from the Domestic Violence Unit, Homicide Unit, and the Child Physical Abuse Unit are continuing the investigation.
