Authorities say two men whose bodies were found near a northeast Mesa gun range likely died from a murder-suicide.

A passerby found the bodies face-down on Usery Pass Road last Friday and called the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. One man was declared dead on the scene and the other was airlifted to a Scottsdale hospital where he died.

Investigators say both men died from gunshot wounds.

The sheriff's office announced Wednesday that the victims have been identified as 22-year-old Alejandro Rafael Meza, of Rio Rico, and 28-year-old Christian Bolanos Garcia.

Authorities believe Meza and Garcia attacked and stabbed a woman in Scottsdale last Friday morning before fleeing in a car.
