Man Shot to Death in Phoenix

Police are looking for a suspect after a man was shot and killed early Sunday morning after an apparent argument at a Phoenix home, authorities said.

Shortly after 5 a.m., police received a call about an unwanted guest at a home near 21st Avenue and Cactus Road, said Sgt. Vince Lewis, a spokesman for the Phoenix Police Department. It was soon after the initial call and complaint, PPD received reports of a shooting at the residence.

When officers arrived, they found a man inside who had died with an apparent gunshot wound to the stomach. Officers recovered a shotgun from the home.

Police have identified a suspect in the shooting, who reportedly lives at the home, who has not been located at this time, authorities report. A man and a woman were also at the residence have been detained for questioning but are not being confirmed as primary suspects.

The suspect fled the scene driving a white Chevy pickup and police believe both the suspect and victim had been out partying and returned to the home before the argument and shooting took place.

Detectives will be on scene processing evidence throughout the day (this happened early Sunday) and suspect is still at large.

Call the Phoenix Police Department if you believe that you may know the whereabouts of the suspect in question.
