PHOENIX — A shooting at a gathering in north Phoenix early Saturday morning left a 14-year-old female dead and eight people injured, authorities said.

Police received multiple shots fired calls at around 1 a.m. and responded to a strip mall in the area of 10th Avenue and Hatcher Road.

Approximately 100 people were gathered at a possible party when an altercation broke out, leading to gunshots fired into a crowd. The shooting allegedly occurred inside a building, in the parking lot and roadway area, authorities said.

Three victims were transported to hospitals with life-threatening injuries, authorities said.

A female, believed to be an adult, was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Five adult males and a teenage male suffered non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.

The victims were between 18-24 years old.

The investigation is ongoing and the suspect is outstanding. No arrests have been made.

Evidence suggests the shooter used a handgun, authorities said.

Hatcher Road will be closed from 7th to 12th avenues for the whole morning on Saturday with no timetable to reopen, authorities said.

Anybody with information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (948-6377) or 480-TESTIGO (837-8446) for Spanish.
