SUN LAKES, Ariz. -

Detectives from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office are investigating after a man and woman were found dead inside a home near Dobson and Riggs Road in Sun Lakes.

Wednesday afternoon, deputies received a request for a welfare check on the home, where a man lived alone with his two dogs.

The person requesting the welfare check reported receiving a text message from the man that indicated he was going to kill himself.

Deputies responded to the home and received no answer at the door. They forced entry through a back door and found two dogs, which had been shot.

They then found two dead people, a man and a woman. At this point this is believed to be a murder-suicide.

No names have been released. The investigation is ongoing.
