An 8-year-old boy was most likely a witness to a murder-suicide Sunday night that took the life of his mother, according to Phoenix Police Department.

When police responded to a call that came in Sunday night, officers found a woman who was apparently shot by her boyfriend.

The man in his 20s then turned the gun on himself. The shooting occurred at an apartment home near 61st Avenue and Thomas Road. It appears that the couple was arguing before the incident, but investigators don’t know the reason.

The boy, who was not physically injured, was being cared for by the Fire Department’s Crisis Response Team.
