CASA GRANDE, Ariz. — An 18-year-old and 17-year-old are dead after a shooting in Casa Grande Sunday night, the city's police department said.

Officers arrived at the scene after multiple reports of gunshots being fired near the intersection of Pottebaum Road and East Doan Street, police said. They discovered a "chaotic scene" near the parking lot of the nearby apartment complex.

The 18-year-old victim, identified as Leslie Cota, was found inside a vehicle with an unknown amount of gunshot wounds, officers said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
