PHOENIX — A man was arrested last week after a woman was fatally shot in Phoenix, authorities said.

Officers responded to Cave Creek Road and Greenway Parkway Friday around 7 a.m. regarding a shooting, the Phoenix Police Department said.

Police found 31-year-old Stephanie Ellico with a gunshot wound and she was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Officers said Ellico was involved in an altercation with Christian Ball, 31, during which Ball was cut with a bladed instrument.

Minutes later, Ball fatally shot Ellico, police said.

Ball was booked into Fourth Avenue Jail on one count of possession of a weapon by a prohibited person. His bond was set at $100,000.

Homicide charges related to the investigation will be reviewed by the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.
