CASA GRANDE, AZ (KTVK/CNN) - Police in Arizona are investigating after they said a man shot his wife and a police officer before turning the gun on himself.

A manhunt was issued for 37-year-old Juan Pablo Rodriguez-Fregoso earlier Wednesday, after he fled the scene of the double shooting.

Officers found Fregoso dead in his car, of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police said he shot his wife, Yvette Rodriguez, a civilian employee of the Casa Grande Police Department.

They said he also shot off-duty Casa Grande police officer Robert Price.

Both were hospitalized in serious condition.

The motive is not clear at this time.
