PHOENIX — Two suspects, including a minor, are facing first-degree murder charges following a fatal shooting in the parking lot of the Ikea in Tempe on Monday, authorities said.

“During that transaction, some sort of altercation occurred that led to the shooting,” Barela said.
The incident occurred around 1:30 p.m. at the Arizona Mills off Interstate 10 between Warner and Elliot roads, police said.
Williams and the minor suspect were detained following a traffic stop in Maricopa, according to police.
The suspects were also charged with aggravated robbery.
