GLENDALE, Ariz — Police have identified the suspect and the victim in the deadly temp agency shooting in Glendale Monday. 

The victim died from his injuries at the hospital. Police identified him Tuesday as 50- year-old Scott Isaacson. Police say he was shot multiple times. 

The shooter, who was later shot in an officer-involved shooting with Glendale PD near 43rd Avenue and McDowell Road Monday afternoon was identified as 40-year-old Julius Grant.

Police responded to Integrity Staffing Solutions located near Camelback Road and 95th Avenue around 9:30 a.m. Monday.

Police say Grant, a former employee of Integrity Staffing Solutions, was upset over a pay issue. Grant went to the location and after pacing around outside, he entered an office where Isaacson was meeting with two other employees.

Grant broke up the meeting. Court documents say Grant indicated to investigators that Isaacson's body language suggested that nothing was going to be done about the pay situation and he shot him three times. 

Employees reported barricading themselves in their offices. 

One woman, who is a recruiter and payroll specialist for the business, said Grant put the gun against her forehead and chest multiple times. 

"We love you. Why don't you guys want to pay us," he allegedly said as he held the gun to her.  

Grant then walked out of the business and fled the scene. 

Police don't think Isaacson oversaw Grant or was responsible for his pay issue.

Shortly before 3 p.m., Glendale police said on Twitter the suspect was shot.

Police say undercover detectives located Grant in a vehicle and attempted to take him into custody in the area of 43rd Avenue just north of McDowell Road in Phoenix when Grant displayed a handgun out the open driver’s window of his vehicle. 

At least one Glendale Police detective fired, striking Grant, police said. No detectives from agencies other than Glendale Police fired during the incident.

Grant was shot in the arm and hand through the door and will be OK.

Grant’s will be booked on first-degree murder and aggravated assault charges related to the incident that occurred in Glendale following his release from the hospital. 

Integrity Staffing Solutions sent the following statement on Tuesday:

“We want to express our heartfelt sadness and shock over what has happened regarding the tragic shooting that took place yesterday in Glendale, AZ.

Our thoughts, hearts, and prayers are with all of those impacted, the first responders, and the community of Phoenix . Members of the Integrity leadership team are onsite and right now, our priority is to support those impacted and their families during this difficult time.

We are cooperating fully with the agencies involved and thank them for their immediate and incredible response. The investigation is ongoing, and we will continue to work to support all efforts made by the local, state and federal law enforcement organizations.

Scott Isaacson, one of our Integrity family members, was fatally injured yesterday. Scott has been a part of the Integrity team for six amazing years. While he started his journey with us as a recruiter in 2013, Scott most recently held the role of an Area Manager, overseeing multiple branches for the company. He was well-respected and admired by his team and his peers. Scott wasn’t just a team member—he was our friend—and we are simply heartbroken that he is no longer with us."

A GoFundMe has been created to help the Isaacson family during this time. 

The Phoenix Police Department may recommend further charges after reviewing the officer-involved shooting, which Phoenix PD is investigating.
