Mesa Police are investigating a shooting that left two people dead at an apartment complex.

This happened Saturday morning near Main Street and Alma School Road.

Officers responded to a call in reference to a shooting, and when they arrived at the scene, they had to force entry into the apartment to render aid to the injured subjects inside.

A man and woman were pronounced dead inside the apartment. 

Authorities say a handgun was found at the scene and there's initial indication that this is a homicide/suicide case.

The deceased couple have a 4-year-old child.  They have been identified as 22-year-old Michael Parker Jr. and 21-year-old Michelle Parker.

Police say the man left the child with a neighbor prior to the shooting. That child has since been placed with relatives.

The investigation continues.
