VAIL, Ariz. — Pima County authorities say an injured man is in custody following the killings of two women and the injury of a second man who apparently all lived at the same residence.

The Sheriff’s Department says the dead women were found inside the home and the injured suspect in a culvert on the property after deputies responding to a report of an assault met the second injured man. He had called 911 from a neighbor’s home.

The department says both injured men remain hospitalized.

Additional information wasn’t released.

The incident occurred Friday in Vail, which is approximately 20 miles (32 kilometers) southeast of central Tucson.
