MESA -- Mesa police are investigating a double shooting that has left one man dead and a woman wounded.

Police responded late Sunday evening to the 23-hundred block of East Main Street.

Officers arrived on scene and located a man face down in the front room of an apartment and a woman with a gunshot wound to the face. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Mesa police said the female victim was transported to the hospital and is in very critical condition.

Police think the man was visiting the woman, shot her during an argument and then turned the gun on himself.
