Driver Found Dead of Gunshot Wounds After Crashing into Home


The Phoenix police have found the driver of a vehicle. The driver was found dead and the cause was gunshot wounds. He was found after the car crashed into a Phoenix home on Tuesday night.

According to a Phoenix Police spokesman, Officer James Holmes, the Phoenix police were called to the home near 20th Street and South Mountain Avenue around ten,thirty in the evening on Tuesday. This was after a resident had called and said a car had driven into a home.

Gunshot Victim Found Dead

The investigators found the thirty-six year old man inside of the car. The man was dead. Officer Holmes said that they realized after examining the man that he had a gunshot wound. Police have not identified the victim at this time.

According to Officer Holmes, no one else was in the vehicle when it had went through the home’s garage and then into the bedroom of the home. A woman and her boyfriend were however, inside of the home at the time of the crash. They luckily did not suffer from any injuries.

Blanca Fernandez was in her bedroom when she hear a large crash. She though someone had broken into their home so she immediately ran into her daughter’s bedroom, however she could barely see anything because the furniture had been pushed so far back into the room.

Blanca Fernandez Statement:

We went outside, and that’s when we saw the vehicle completely through the garage in her bedroom.


Blanca lives in the house with two daughters. The girls are four years old and an eighteen year old. Luckily both girls weren’t home at the time of the crash. The car had hit an armoire in the four year old’s bedroom. The impact moved it into the bed then that pushed the rest of the furniture into the doorway.


 Fernandez Statement:

Had she been home, she would have been sitting there when it happened.


The investigation happened after the crash and lasted until around four o’clock that next morning. Fernandez was not allowed in her house while the investigation was going on since it was now a crime scene. The authorities finally removed the body and the vehicle then called in a clean up crew to clean the garage.

The police say that no one had witnessed the shooting and there was no motive or a suspect at this time. However there was one resident who reported that they had heard shots fired in the area.

Police are asking anyone with any information about this case to call Silent Witness at (480) WITNESS.
