Police ID 3 shot in Tucson home in apparent murder-suicide

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities have identified three people found fatally shot inside a Tucson home in an apparent double murder-suicide.

Tucson police say the bodies of two men and one woman were found Wednesday night after a resident in the house went to a neighbor for help.

They identified the three Thursday as 49-year-old Rusty Coblyn, his 59-year-old wife Willa Coblyn and her 26-year-old son Matthew Johnson.

Police say it appears Rusty Coblyn killed his wife in a back bedroom sometime Wednesday and then later shot her son when he came home.

They say Matthew Johnson's twin brother escaped injury and went to a neighbor's home for help when Rusty Coblyn's two guns malfunctioned.

Responding officers reported hearing a gunshot and Rusty Coblyn was found dead inside the home from a self-inflicted wound.
