ARIVACA, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a home invasion in a rural
southern Arizona community has left a man and a young girl dead and
a woman wounded.
Pima County sheriff's Sgt. Cathryn Masters says four to five people forced their way into the home in Arivaca on Saturday morning and shot the victims. Masters says the girl was about 9 years old.
The wounded woman was taken to a hospital. Masters didn't know
her condition or the woman's relationship to the man and the child.
Authorities are searching for the attackers. Masters says at least one of them is a woman. No motive for the home invasion has been released.
Arivaca is about 60 miles south of Tucson and 10 miles north of the Mexican border. Largely rural, homes are widely spread across the desert.
