PHOENIX — Two people are dead after a shooting occurred at a night club in Mesa early Sunday morning, authorities said.

Police responded to the area of Alma School Road and Southern Avenue after receiving reports of a shooting at around 2:20 a.m.

Officers discovered two males with gunshot wounds in the parking lot who were pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

Two other victims were then located with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds and transported to a local hospital for medical treatment, authorities said.

Upon police arrival, a passenger car was seen leaving the parking lot at a high speed.

Officers pursued the vehicle and stopped it in the area of Seventh and Southern avenues in Phoenix, where three occupants were detained to determine their involvement in the shooting, authorities said.

Officers retraced the path driven during the pursuit and located a handgun near the roadway of the crime scene. The weapon will be examined to determine its involvement, authorities said.

Detectives are working on identifying the deceased males.

An investigation remains ongoing.
