Police are investigating the shooting deaths of five people and two dogs found at a Phoenix apartment complex.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson says officers responded to a call about shots fired at the complex around 9 a.m. Saturday. Officers eventually narrowed down their search area to two apartments.

Television station KNXV reports officers entered the first apartment and found the bodies of four people. Two were on the patio and two were outside. Two dead dogs were also found.

In the second apartment nearby, Thompson says officers found the body of the suspected gunman.

Police say the suspect died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police have not released any names or any details about what might have prompted the shootings.
