PHOENIX (AP) - The Latest on a triple homicide in western Arizona (all times local):

11:15 a.m.

The sister of a man labeled as a person of interest in a western Arizona triple homicide says he has no history of violent behavior.

Tsancyi (tan-‘SEE) Lynch told The Associated Press on Thursday that she had no idea her brother, 24-year-old Kitage Lynch, is accused of shooting at police.

Tsancyi Lynch, who lives in Hawaii, says she had been trying to get in touch with him.

Kitage Lynch is being held on charges that he shot at Glendale police officers on Wednesday.

He was found with a victim’s car and a gun stolen from the homicide scene.

A sheriff’s official says victims in a western Arizona triple homicide are a man and two women who were found dead in residences on desert property used by Phoenix-area residents for weekend getaways.

La Paz County Sheriff’s Lt. Curt Bagby says the killings apparently occurred last weekend when the victims were the only people staying at the property southeast of Salome (suh-LOHM’).

Bagby says investigators focused initially on collecting evidence before it can degrade and that they’re now shifting to concentrate on interviewing people connected with the property.

The Sheriff’s office says a Phoenix man accused of shooting at Glendale police officers Thursday is an investigate lead in the triple homicide. Police say he had a victim’s car and a gun stolen from the homicide scene.
