MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Police in Mesa are searching for suspects behind the shooting death of a man in his apartment on Christmas Day.

Authorities say the shooting took place at an apartment complex near US 60 and Gilbert Road on Friday.

They say officers were called and they found 24-year-old Robert Gertos with a gunshot wound in his apartment.

Gertos was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the shooting may have been drug-related.

They did not release any information about possible suspects.
