1 man fatally shot in west Phoenix parking lot

PHOENIX — Authorities say a man has been fatally shot in a west Phoenix
parking lot.

Police say the shooting occurred Monday afternoon outside a Home Depot store
near 99th Avenue and Camelback Road.

They say two men were in the parking lot working out details of an online
transaction when they were approached by a stranger.

That man demanded information from the men and then reportedly pulled out a
gun.

One of the other men drew his own weapon and shot the stranger, who police say
was taken to a hospital and later died.

The names of the men involved haven’t been released.

Police say the shooter is claiming self-defense, but detectives are still
investigating the incident.
