Police Investigate Phoenix Homicide Shooting

Phoenix police stay pretty busy in the Phoenix area. Now they have to investigate a Phoenix shooting that happened on a Saturday morning.

According to the Phoenix Police Depart, the officers went to investigate the call around 3:30 in the morning. The call took them to 15th Avenue and Osborn Road.

The police arrived and found a man who was injured from a gunshot. The wounded man had to be taken to the local hospital for his wound, where he sadly passed away due to his injuries.

According to the reports, the police say that they had followed “evidence” of an injured person away from the scene. However, they weren’t able to locate a second victim.

Later that night the police got another call about a second shooting victim was found near 27th and Southern Avenues.

The reports say that the second victim was an adult male. He also had to be transported to the local hospital, but he didn’t not have life threatening injuries. The police think that the two shooting scenes are connect.

Phoenix Police Responded to Homicide Call

Another day, another homicide in Phoenix. This time the shooting happened to a man, who ended up dying to his wounds. According to the Phoenix Police, the shooting happened on Saturday morning.

Phoenix police got to the scene around 5 o’clock in the morning. The reports say that they went to the 10100 block of  West Cordes Road. After arriving they found a man who was shot inside of the home and was fatally shot. After the investigation, police are calling this a homicide.

The police of course questioned to neighbors to hopefully find something out. If the police did find something they’re not releasing the information at this time.

Phoenix Police Investigate Found Body

It’s a sad day when someone is minding their own business and randomly finds a dead body in a public alley. Talk about no remorse from the person who killed the victim.

The Phoenix police now have to investigate the homicide. The witness found the body in the alley.  According to reports, the witness found the body near 2200 N. Dayton Street in an alley. The victim was a twenty-seven year old man. The witness made the call to the police around 7:30 in the morning.

After the police got to the scene they figured out that the cause of the victims death was pretty suspicious. That’s when this incident turned into a homicide case.

Phoenix Police are asking that if anyone has information on this murder then please call Silent Witness. Callers can always remain anonymous. They’re even offering a $1000 reward

At the Phoenix based Offices of Criminal Defense Lawyers PLLC, you will find the experienced, dedicated and highly skilled trial attorneys you need to protect your rights. Each of our attorneys made a conscious decision to become a criminal defense lawyer.

We believe strongly that skilled and passionate defense attorneys can make a difference in the lives of their clients. We go into every case feeling that we can make that difference.


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.


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:


  • Self-Defense
  • Insanity
  • 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

Significantly Minimize the Charges or Penalties you Face
