PHOENIX — Two men died Wednesday after an apparent murder-suicide at a Phoenix business, authorities said.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting around 4:40 p.m. near 19th Avenue and Bethany Home Road, the Phoenix Police Department said in a press release.

A fight broke out between employee Shane Knoll, 30, and 40-year-old Jaime Flores after Knoll tried to kick Flores out of the store, police said.
