GLENDALE, Ariz. — Detectives are asking for help finding a suspect they say shot and killed a man during an argument over a parking space at Westgate Wednesday night. 

Police responded to a shooting call near Glendale and 91st avenues and found 31-year-old Avondale resident Tyler Wilson with multiple gunshot wounds. 

He was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

Police said Wilson was a passenger in a vehicle that was trying to back into a parking space when he got into an argument with the driver of another car.
