Police are actively trying to identify and locate two suspects in a homicide case in Phoenix.

On Feb. 27 at approximately 8:30 p.m., police said a resident in the area of 2000 West Monroe Street reported an “in progress” burglary at her home. When police arrived, they found a shooting had occurred within the home and the suspects had fled.

Police investigation revealed that the two suspects entered the home and got into two separate confrontations with two adult male residents. One, 53-year-old Jack Moriarty, was shot and killed and the second man sustained minor injury. The suspects then stole some personal property and fled.
