PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Phoenix police identified a man who was shot and killed while riding his bicycle with another person in west Phoenix early Monday morning, and the search for the shooter and his accomplice continued.

Brent A Stasilli, 34, died at a Phoenix hospital after he was shot near Thomas Road and 71st Avenue about 12:30 a.m., said Phoenix police Sgt. Tommy Thompson.

A man and woman were being sought by police in connection with the shooting.

Stasilli and a 41-year-old woman were riding their bicycles on Earll Drive near 71st Avenue when the man and woman pulled up in a blue four-door Chevrolet Impala and they got into some sort of altercation, Thompson said.

The man in the car got out and shot the bicyclists. The woman was hospitalized but is expected to survive her wounds, Thompson said.

Thompson described the shooter as Hispanic, 35 to 45 years old, 5'10" tall, heavy set, with a dark complexion and acne-scarred face. He was wearing a black "do-rag," black shirt and shorts.

The woman was described as Hispanic with long, black, wavy shoulder-length hair and eyeglasses. She was wearing a black T-shirt and purple surgical scrubs.

No motive was given and no other information was immediately available.
