Police situation at the Hampton Inn

Staff ~ 4/15/2015

PHOENIX – Emergency crews responded to a police situation at the Hampton Inn in north Phoenix on the morning of Friday, April 10.

“Officers arrived at the hotel room and found one adult female, obviously deceased, as well as an adult male with what appeared to be self-inflicted stab wounds,” said Phoenix Police Sergeant Vince Lewis.  “The male was transported to the hospital in critical condition.”

Lewis noted that the incident is being investigated as a “Death Unknown as well as a suicide attempt.” Due to the nature of the case, investigators are not actively searching for any suspects; Lewis reported that it appeared likely that each individual had intent to take their own life.

“The hotel was not evacuated and area businesses remain open as normal,” Lewis said.
