West Phoenix Shooting Ends Deadly for Teenager


The Phoenix Police Officials are now investigating a scene after a teenager was sadly shot and killed in the West Phoenix area on Sunday night.


Sgt. Steve Martos from the Phoenix Police said that seventeen year old Christopher Garcia as well as four other people were walking northbound around ten o’clock Sunday night. They were walking on 67th Avenue near the Van Buren Street when a truck pulled up beside of them. Sgt. Martos said that there were two armed suspects that got out of the truck. Three people from the walking group quickly ran away from the area, however Garcia and another person stayed with the truck.


17 Year Old Teenager Shot


Sgt. Martos stated that the seventeen year old was sadly shot and then the suspects drove away. The teenager victim was transported to the local hospital where he was sadly pronounced dead. The investigating officials found a burning vehicle later. The vehicle was located near the 32nd Avenue and Coronado Road. The vehicle matched the description of the suspects’ vehicle. The Phoenix Police are working to hopefully see if the vehicle is indeed related to the tragic teenager being shot.


At this time there is no definite description of the shooter’s looks. Because of this tragic event that lead to a teenager to being shot, traffic was expected to be delayed that morning so that the Phoenix police could investigate the scene. I can’t imagine what this teenager’s parents and family are going through at this time. Hopefully the investigators are able to make some headway and find some evidence pointing them into the right direction of the person who shot the seventeen year old young man. If anyone knows anything about this shooting, please contact the local Phoenix authorities with the information.
