SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities have released the identities of a father and son who both died after a domestic violence incident at the family’s home in Surprise.

Surprise police say 53-year-old Silvio Alessi died Wednesday night from blunt-force trauma while 21-year-old George Alessi died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Police were called to the home about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday after a 911 caller reported someone had been shot.

They say Silvio Alessi probably was struck in the head with a hatchet.

Police say George Alessi was found in the kitchen by his mother with a small-caliber handgun on the floor near his body.

He was airlifted to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police say the father and son had no history of domestic violence and their investigation was continuing.
