Officers were called to a Scottsdale residence Saturday morning to respond to an attempted suicide.

Scottsdale Police Sgt. Mark Clark says the initial investigation determined the death was not a suicide or accidental. Investigators now believe foul play was involved.

Clark says in a news release that when officers arrived at the residence they found the victim in grave condition with a chest wound.

The man was taken to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

A woman who called police told officers she left the residence for a short time and returned to find the victim alone with the injury.
