Phoenix never lacks in the shooting or criminal department, sadly a lot of areas don’t lack in those areas any more. Two more people have been shot in the Phoenix area. This time in an overnight altercation. It happened in a west Phoenix apartment parking lot.
The shooting happened around midnight and in the area of 27th Avenue and Camelback Road.
According to the police, a man and woman were in a parked car which was in the rear part of the parking lot. The pair was met by two other people who stood outside of their vehicle and was talking to them. Then, an unknown suspect came towards them and started firing at them. The shots ended up hitting the woman who was in the car and a man who was standing on the outside of it.
The police say that the woman who was shot was thirty-eight years old. She was sadly shot in the head and had to be airlifted to the nearest hospital. She’s in critical, but stable condition.
The reports said that the shooting suspect fled the scene on foot.

Hiring the Right Homicide Lawyer in Phoenix
Having a skilled homicide defense attorney is important in any criminal case, but it is even more critical in a murder case. To properly defend a client against a murder charge, a defense lawyer must be prepared to effectively challenge the prosecution’s evidence. To do so, a Phoenix Murder Defense Attorney must be prepared to effectively cross-examine the prosecution’s witnesses, including any expert witnesses.
In some cases, a Phoenix Homicide Defense Attorney may need to use expert witnesses on behalf of the defendant to challenge forensic evidence, ballistics evidence and other scientific evidence presented by the prosecution. We are prepared to do so and have worked with expert witnesses in the past to provide a vigorous defense on our clients’ behalf.
In addition to fighting your charges at trial (or seeking a case dismissal for lack of probable cause), we can also negotiate with the prosecution to seek a favorable plea agreement. A plea agreement might involve a plea to a lesser offense or an agreement on sentencing that will significantly reduce the penalties you face.
Homicide Defense Strategy
We will take the time to talk to witnesses, investigate what really happened in your case, understand what evidence is in the prosecution’s possession, look for holes in the prosecution’s case, and determine if the police violated your constitutional rights or made other critical errors that can be used to your advantage.
We are committed to raising a strong and comprehensive defense on your behalf. Depending on the facts of your case, the following defenses and strategies may be helpful:
- Mistaken Identity
- Suppression of Evidence
- Challenging DNA, Fingerprint Evidence and other Forensic Evidence
- Challenging Ballistics Evidence (Relating to Firearms and Bullets)
- Challenging the Reliability of an Eyewitness
- Challenging Whether the Evidence Sustains a Murder Conviction
- Negotiation with the Prosecution to Determine if a Plea Agreement Could
