PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Attorney Mark Hummels, the attorney wounded by a gunman in a Phoenix workplace shooting, died Thursday night.

Hummels was one of three people shot by alleged gunman Arthur Harmon, 70, at an office building near 16th Street and Glendale Avenue on Wednesday.

Athia Hard, a spokeswoman for the law firm Osborn Maledon which employed Hummels, said Hummels was declared brain dead and taken off life support Thursday night.

In a statement on Thursday, Osborn Maledon said:

"We have been informed that Mark will not survive from the shooting.

"We are devastated at the loss of our beloved friend. Our deepest sympathy and support pour out to his wife, Dana, and their two children. The trust and affection Mark inspired in every reach of our law firm and with his clients are a lasting testament we will always cherish.

"We are sad beyond measure also to have lost our longtime friend and client, Steven D. Singer, the CEO of Fusion Contact Centers, in this tragedy. Steve was a longtime client of the firm and an accomplished entrepreneur. Our thoughts and prayers are with Steve's family as well."
