Phoenix Dad Shot During Drug Trade

Police are investigating a shooting in west Phoenix that left one man in extremely critical condition.

Police were called to the area of 67th Avenue and Van Buren Street around 7 p.m. Saturday after receiving reports about the shooting.

Witnesses told authorities that a man and his adult son went to the home to meet with three men, police said. They were involved in a drug transaction, police said.

The victim was shot shortly after arriving at the home during a verbal argument, police said. The son was not injured, however another individual assaulted the man’s son who was able to run away. The man suffered extremely critical injuries from his gunshot wound and passed away at the hospital.

Shooting Suspect Flees Scene

The suspects fled the area after the shooting, police said. A description of the trio is unavailable.

Police are investigating and are urging anyone with information to contact Silent Witness at (480) WITNESS or the Phoenix Police Department. Stay with ABC15 News and abc15.com for the latest updates.

Phoenix Shooting Victim ID

Phoenix have identified a man fatally shot inside a gasoline station bathroom as 42-year-old Mario Ramos.

Sgt. Mercedes Fortune says the Thursday afternoon incident of a QuikTrip at Camelback Road and 27th Avenue remains under investigation.

Fortune says witnesses reported seeing and hearing a fight between two men in the bathroom.

As the two were fighting in the bathroom, police say one man shot the other.

Police say the alleged shooter told officers that the other man was physically assaulting him and he fired in self-defense.

18 Year Old Shot

A 18-year-old man is dead after he was shot walking home from getting snacks at a local gas station, according to the Phoenix Police Department.

It happened on the corner of 27th Avenue and Butler Drive around 9:30 p.m. Thursday, police said.

The teen reportedly was walking home with some food he got at a nearby gas station when he was shot. Police found him in a parking lot.

“The man was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead,” a police statement said. “We are currently looking for suspects involved in the shooting.”

Phoenix police are asking the public to call the department or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS if they know anything about the shooting.

Phoenix Man Suspect in Phoenix Shootings

An Arizona man has been accused of a string of shootings that left seven people dead and terrified the Phoenix area.

Authorities said Monday that Aaron Saucedo, 23, was already in custody — arrested in April — for a 2015 killing. He now faces another 26 charges after being identified as the “serial shooter” who targeted victims over a four-month span starting last March.

“Our officers did not rest,” Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton said at a Monday press conference. “Investigators worked every lead, they followed the evidence. They were thorough. They had a clear mission: Bring this killer to justice and get it right.”

Saucedo, a former bus driver for the city of Phoenix, was thought to have killed seven people and wounded two others, though police now say his first victim was his mother’s boyfriend, Raul Romero. He was killed in August 2015.

Saucedo faces multiple counts of homicide, assault and drive-by shooting.

While the suspect knew Romero, 61, police believe Saucedo shot his victims at random.

Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams told reporters that “tips from within our own community led us to a possible suspect” and praised the work of her officers.

Party Shooting

Phoenix police say one man is dead and another wounded following a shooting early Friday morning at a large party held in a parking lot in downtown Phoenix.

Sgt. Alan Pfohl says callers reported hearing approximately 20 shots and that the wounded man’s injury isn’t life-threatening.

Pfohl also says people were leaving the area when officers arrived and that potential witnesses at the site several blocks south of Chase Field were uncooperative with police.

Media outlets reported that the party was a fish fry sponsored by a motorcycle club with about 1,000 people in attendance.
