PHOENIX (AP) - Police say a body found in bushes at a Phoenix suburb has been positively identified as the man who killed a company CEO and critically wounded a lawyer.

A landscaper in Mesa found the body of 70-year-old Arthur Douglas Harmon early Thursday morning, one day after the shooting at a north-central Phoenix office building.

Authorities say the rental car he was driving was found nearby in a parking lot.

Police say Harmon died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, and a handgun was also found.

The shooting happened at the end of a mediation session over a lawsuit Harmon filed against a company in a contract dispute.
