At approximately 3 p.m. this afternoon members of the U.S. Marshals task force located a suspect vehicle connected to a shooting investigation earlier today in Casa Grande, said Detective Nikolas Rasheta, a spokesperson for the Mesa Police Department. “Members of the task force were observing the suspect vehicle as it traveled west bound on the 202 when it came to stop just east of Dobson Road. No traffic stop was initiated and there was no attempt to stop the vehicle when it stopped on its own.”

Rasheta said task force members attempted to contact the suspect and there was no response. “Less than lethal means were used to break the vehicle glass window and officers ultimately approached and located a deceased male in the driver seat. Initial observations indicate the male has a self inflicted gun shot wound. Mesa police will be handling the death investigation and Casa Grande will continue to be the lead investigative agency on the shooting.”
