Wichita police investigated a murder/suicide Sunday night in the south part of Wichita, involving a man and his mother.

A 49-year-old woman sought help from police after she and other family-members were not able to make contact with the woman's older sister.

Law enforcement responded to a residence on MacArthur, east of I-135; inside, they found a 55-year-old woman dead from a stab wound. Officers also found the woman's son, a 28-year-old man in another bedroom, dead from a gunshout wound to the head. Next to the man was a bolt-action rifle, and his injury appeared to be self-inflicted.

The woman's death becomes the 36th murder in 33 weeks in Wichita this year.
