PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Mesa police say a 67-year-old man and his 14-year-old daughter are dead in what appears to be a murder-suicide.

Detective Nik Rasheta of the Mesa Police Department said it looks like the man shot the teen and then killed himself.

The two were found in a locked car parked outside the Country Inn and Suites near Power Road and Superstition Springs Freeway. Somebody walked up to the car at about 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday and saw the bodies inside. That person then called 911.

Officers said they believe the pair had been staying at the motel and were evicted for not paying one or two days before their bodies were discovered.

A gun was found in the vehicle.

Police said they are are not looking for any suspects.

"The initial observations and facts point toward this being a murder/suicide scenario," Rasheta said Wednesday.  "Both individuals have been identified, however, next of kin notifications have not been completed therefore we cannot release names at this time."
