TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Police say three people found dead after an apparent double homicide and suicide on Tuesday lived together at the home where they were found on Tucson's east side.

Tucson Police detectives say the crime scene is about two blocks long, including the home on the 1300 block of North Bonanza Avenue, near East Speedway Boulevard and North Harrison Road.

Police say 34-year-old Heather Marcucci, 21-year-old Jeremy DeBaker, and their child, 7-week-old Jase David DeBaker were all found on the property with gunshot trauma. Jeremy DeBaker's wound appeared to be self-inflicted, police say.

Authorities tell us Jeremy DeBaker and Marcucci were boyfriend and girlfriend that were living together with their son Jase David DeBaker.
According to TPD Sgt. Pete Dugan, police received several 911 calls about shots being fired around 1:30 on Tuesday morning.  Officers arrived on scene to find the family and two dogs dead at a single family home. The dogs were also shot, according to police.

TPD officials say there are no records of any previous 911 domestic violence calls to the residence.

Police are asking anyone with information about this incident to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
