PHOENIX — A teen is dead after an altercation Monday night in a Peoria home, authorities said.

Around 11:20 p.m., police responded to the report of a shooting in the area of Lone Mountain Parkway and El Mirage Road, the Peoria Police Department said.

The caller said a known suspect, identified as 18-year-old Ryan Garcia, was inside the home shooting, police said.

Four subjects allegedly arrived at the home and one of them entered without permission.

An altercation followed between the residents and Garcia inside the home.

Gunfire was exchanged, which led to Garcia being fatally wounded, police said.

Officers said two of the subjects attempted to leave the area in a white Toyota Corolla, but they were later located by police before they could leave the neighborhood.

The occupants were detained as well as a third subject who was located nearby.

They were interviewed by police and released.

No charges have been submitted.

Investigators said the incident appears to be isolated and everyone involved knew each other.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Peoria Police Department at 623-773-7045 or Silent Witness at 480-948-6377.
