PHOENIX– Phoenix police are searching for a suspect in a shooting that left one man dead and two others injured on Saturday, authorities said.

Phoenix police responded to reports of a shooting in the area of 15th Avenue and Taylor Street.

When officers arrived just before 1:30 a.m., they found three men with gunshot wounds and one woman that was unharmed, Phoenix police said in a press release.

One victim, 30-year-old Manuel Reyes, was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The two other men were taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds that were deemed non-life-threatening.

The suspects in the case fled the scene before officers arrived.

The preliminary information indicates that a confrontation occurred between the victims and suspects outside of a home. During this confrontation, multiple suspects began shooting at the victims, authorities said.

Homicide detectives have taken over the ongoing investigation.
