PHOENIX — A juvenile was arrested after a Phoenix man was fatally shot in a West Valley suburb on Monday, authorities said.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting in a residential area near El Mirage and Cactus roads around 12:30 p.m., the El Mirage Police Department said.

They found an unresponsive man with apparent gunshot wounds in the driver’s seat of a BMW sedan.

The 22-year-old victim, whose name was not released, died after being taken to a hospital.
