Three Dead, Two Wounded in Phoenix Apartment Shooting

Three people are dead and two were injured during an early-morning shooting at a Phoenix apartment complex.

The shooting was reported just before 4 a.m. today at the Canterbury apartment complex near 23rd and Campbell avenues.

Two men, ages 20 and 26, were pronounced dead at the scene. A woman, age 35, died at a hospital.

Two other people in their mid-20s were wounded and taken to a area hospital, one with life-threatening injuries.

Police are looking for six people in connection with the shooting, including five black males and one white female.

Phoenix police haven't released too many details, but the Arizona Republic caught up with a neighbor who was across the street "playing dice" about 3:30 this morning, about the time of the shooting.

The neighbor, 29-year-old Lamont Mitchell, says he saw a car roll up to the house before two men got out and started shooting.

Phoenix police will release more information later today. Check back for updates.
