PHOENIX – A man was wounded in a shooting Monday morning that prompted a manhunt near Arizona State University in Tempe, authorities said.

Officers responded to the area of Seventh Street and Forest Avenue around 6 a.m. and found a man with a gunshot wound, the Tempe Police Department said.

The location of the shooting was near the intersection University Drive and Mill Avenue, just north of the ASU campus. The victim was not affiliated with the university, police said.
