, The Republic | azcentral.com

A double shooting in Phoenix on Monday night appears to be a murder-suicide, according to Phoenix police.

Officials say Oliver Olague-Acosta, 34, shot and killed Iveth Susana Chavez, 33, before shooting himself. Four juveniles had either been in or just outside the house at the time, police said.

One of the children called 911 just before 10 p.m.  When police officers arrived on scene near 63rd Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road, they encountered four children leaving the home unharmed, police said.

“The four children told officers that their mother and stepfather were arguing,” said Sgt. Jonathan Howard, a spokesman for the Phoenix Police Department. “They said they heard about four gunshots.”
