MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Police have arrested a suspect in the shootings of a man and woman at a Mesa park in what may have been a botched drug deal.

Mesa police say Mark Demasse III was taken into custody Thursday afternoon in Tempe.

They say Demasse and the victims know each other.

The man was shot in the stomach and the woman was shot in a leg around 5 p.m. Wednesday at Evergreen Park.

Both of the victims are expected to fully recover.

Police have served a search warrant at the location where Demasse was arrested.

It’s unclear if he has a lawyer yet.
