PHOENIX — Phoenix police are searching for a man and woman following a
string of crimes that ended with a shooting Monday night.
Police Sgt. Steve Martos says the crime spree started when a suspect forced
three people from their SUV near 59th Avenue and Thomas Road.
The suspect along with the man and woman who are being sought then went to a
home where they assaulted a resident. The victim was able to take a gun from one
of the suspects and began firing at them as they fled.
Martos says officers were called to a Burger King restaurant where they found
one of the suspects with multiple gunshot wounds. He was seated in the stolen
SUV with a handgun at his feet. He’s now hospitalized in serious condition.
The other two suspects, the man and woman, remain at large.
