PHOENIX (KNXV) — Authorities say a Phoenix man killed his wife, two daughters and the man he suspected of romantic involvement with his wife.

KNXV reports that officials first responded to a neighborhood near 69th Avenue and Osborn Road around 8:15 p.m. for reports of a shooting.

At that location, police found a 46-year-old male deceased. A 47-year-old female was also shot, taken to the hospital in critical condition. Another adult male was located with a gunshot wound, and was taken to the hospital in stable condition.

A vehicle connected to that shooting call was located later near 67th Avenue and Osborn Road. The suspect, a 30-year-old male, was taken into custody without incident.

Information gathered at that scene led police to a home near 67th Avenue and Camelback Road, where police found the suspect's 29-year-old wife deceased. Police also found their seven-year-old and five-year-old daughters deceased at the home. A three-year-old girl was found unharmed, hiding under a bed.
