Phoenix Car Wash Shooting Leaves One Dead


According to the Police, a suspect shot a man at a car wash in Phoenix and then had a seat on the ground nearby the incident. James Holmes who is a spokesman with the Phoenix Police said that the victim was a male. He was at a car wash that was near 3rd Street and McDowell Road on Sunday. The shooting happened around two, thirty in the evening. The suspect just walked up to the victim and shot him.


Mr. Holmes said that the suspect had walked only a short distance from the scene and then sat down under a tree while holding his weapon. The responding officers were luckily able to convince him to give him self up after some negotiations. Holmes also stated that the victim had died from his gunshot injuries. A police lieutenant who was at the scene told the local news that the suspect and the victim were related.


 Police Investigate Car Wash Shooting


The police were able to identify the victim. The Phoenix Police say that the victim was a fifty-four year old man named David Pacheco-Chavez. The car was that he was shot and killed at was the Los Olivos Car Wash.


Police are unsure of why the suspect would shoot his family member. Especially since the victim and suspect lived together. But apparently there might have been an on-going dispute between them. The victim, David Pacheco-Chavez was actually an employee of the Los Olivos Car Wash.


This might sound like a strange shooting and it is, but sadly these kind of random shootings aren’t uncommon. It’s sad that these family members couldn’t work out their differences peacefully instead of it ending with one of their lives.

Two People Shot During Domestic Dispute

Police Investigate Domestic Dispute Shooting


Times are hard and relationships are hard. Domestic Dispute’s are happening more and more, and they rarely have a happy ending.  Phoenix Police stay pretty busy with domestic dispute calls, however Sunday’s call was a little different than their normal calls. Phoenix police are now investigating a domestic dispute after two people were found shot inside of a Phoenix home on Sunday.


Phoenix Police Sgt. Steve Martos stated that the Phoenix Officers had responded to a call of a shooting that was near the Camelback Road and 28th Street areas. At the scene, they found a man and woman with gunshot wounds. Both victims seem to be in their forties.


Police Investigating Phoenix Domestic Dispute


Sgt. Martos said that luckily no one else was home so no one else was harmed. However that makes it harder to figure out what happened. Police are not looking for any suspects at this time. Police do believe that this was indeed a domestic violence situation. Sgt. Martos said that the male is more seriously injured condition that the female gunshot victim.


There is no further information at this time, detectives were just getting to the scene at the time the press release was let out.  So if you are going to marry or live with someone, make sure you all get a long first, of course just because you have an argument that is no reason to freaking shoot someone. Hopefully if you’re having problems with a significant other, you work through them a little better than pulling a gun out and shooting one another. I don’t see how that solves anything, other that one or both of you all going to jail, but it’s whatever floats your boat.
