PHOENIX — Glendale police are searching for multiple suspects following an officer-involved shooting on Sunday, according to authorities.

Officers responded to a shots fired call just south of 61st and Glendale avenues around 1:30 p.m.

The first officer arrived and witnessed an active shooting taking place.

Four individuals then jumped into a newer model white Chrysler 300 and fled the area, according to authorities. The officer fired two rounds toward the vehicle, but it is not believed anyone inside the vehicle was shot.

No officers were injured in the shooting, according to authorities.

Additional officers pursued the vehicle to the area of 91st Avenue and Indian School Road, but later lost track of the suspects.

The suspects are described as males in their 20’s.

Several people were brought in for questioning later that evening and detectives learned the incident started because the four suspects who took off in the car showed up at a home to purchase drugs.

A physical fight broke out that escalated into the shooting incident, authorities said.

There are no individuals in custody at this time and the people who were questioned have been released, according to authorities. Detectives are still actively gathering information and charges may be pending.

An investigation is ongoing.

It was the second shooting of the year involving the Glendale Police Department and 17th overall by Valley law enforcement, according to KTAR News 92.3 FM research.
