PHOENIX – Authorities in Pinal County are searching for a man suspected of fatally shooting his wife Monday night.

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office said Ismael Ortega Hernandez, 32, was seen running away from the home near Stanfield around 9 p.m.

The 30-year-old woman, whose name has not been made public, died of her injuries, PCSO said.

Hernandez’s cellphone was found in the area.

The thin, 5-foot-6 suspect was last seen wearing a black shirt and black pants.

Anyone who sees Hernandez, considered armed and dangerous, should call 911, authorities said.
