PHOENIX — Authorities have removed five bodies from a north Phoenix home where a man shot and killed his two brothers, his mother and one of their wives before taking his own life.

Several police vans and a mobile command center lined the block Friday morning as authorities removed five bodies and bags containing evidence.

Police say that a 50-year-old man had a business dispute with his family that led to the shooting of his family members who ranged in ages between 26 and 76 years.

The shootings took place at a home in a quiet residential neighborhood in north Phoenix. The man's wife fled the home with children ages 3 years and 10 months old and another woman when the gunfire broke out Thursday afternoon.
