PHOENIX — One man is dead and another person was injured after a shooting in north Phoenix Saturday afternoon, the Phoenix Police Department told 12News. Police have identified the victim as 18-year old Miguel Rosas.

The incident occurred in the late afternoon hours at a strip mall near 19th Avenue and Bell Road. Officers arrived at the strip mall to find Rosas on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds. 

Police also found a woman inside one of the businesses who had been hit by gunfire.

Two men got into an argument in the parking lot when one of them allegedly pulled out a gun and shot the other. Police believe that Rosas was an intended target, while the woman was hit by reckless gunfire.

First responders pronounced Rosas dead on the scene, and the woman was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Three people have been detained and were being questioned in connection with the incident, Phoenix police previously said. As of Sunday morning, police have not released a suspect description.
