1 dies, others injured in unrelated shootings in Phoenix
PHOENIX — One man was killed and three other people were injured in a spate of unrelated late-night shootings in Phoenix.
All the suspects fled the scenes.
Police said the young man who died had been talking with several people in a truck near 34th and Glendale avenues Tuesday around 11:30 p.m. They were in a grocery store parking lot. One of the occupants of the truck fired, hitting the 21-year-old multiple times.
He was taken to a hospital, where he died.
Less than two hours earlier, a 28-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman were shot near 15th and Glendales avenues. Their injuries were not life-threatening.
During interviews, police learned that up to five men had been invited into the apartment. A fight eventually broke out and as they left, the men shot the pair.
The victims told police they didn’t know the suspects but that the men might have been friendly with a former roommate.
Another man was shot in a restaurant parking lot near Interstate 17 between Dunlap and Northern avenues early Wednesday. He had been arguing with two other men who drove away in a red four-door car after the shooting around 2 a.m.
The 26-year-old was hospitalized in serious but stable condition.
