1 dead, 1 wounded in south Phoenix shooting


Police are searching for two suspects who allegedly opened fire outside a south Phoenix home, leaving one man dead and a woman injured.

A police sergeant on patrol near 40th Street and Southern Avenue heard multiple gunshots around 3:15 a.m., Phoenix Officer James Holmes said.

Holmes said the sergeant discovered a man and a woman hurt in a front yard.

Officers said the 35-year-old man, who was shot in the torso, later died at a hospital. The 28-year-old woman suffered a gunshot wound to her upper arm and is expected to survive.

Police said the couple and a third person arrived at the home in a car when the male victim got into an argument with two men.

They say one or both of the men shot at the victims.

People with any knowledge of their whereabouts are asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO. The public can also call Silent Witness detectives toll-free at 1-800-343-TIPS. Your call will remain anonymous.
