Two men, two women and a toddler died in the shooting inside the home in the 500 block of West Tumbleweed Road near the intersection of Warner and Cooper roads. One person survived the shooting, and was being treated at a medical center.
May 1st, about 4:45 in the afternoon, witnesses reported seeing someone trying to abduct a 7-9 year little boy, in the Wal Mart parking lot off Hunt Highway.

Dan and Susan, moved to San Tan Valley a couple years ago from Illinois. They knew that they wanted to start a business out here, but finding the right place was a bit of a challenge.
They looked up in the East Valley initially, but both decided that if they could find something here, locally, it would be easier for them as they would always be just down the road if they were needed.
They looked at a location near the Walmart at Hunt and Gary; but never got a call back. They looked at the new center across the street from Walmart, but size was an issue. Then they spoke with the new owners of the Shops at Copper Basin (2510 E Hunt Hwy Suite #22). After only a few conversations, the owners flew out from Texas to meet Dan and Susan and within a few months, Lavelle's Deli and Ice Cream was ready to open to the public.
