A few days ago, on October 25, at around 9 at night, reports came in that there had been a shooting at a hotel. The hotel is located near 25th Street and Van Buren, right near Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix. The shooting started at 8:40 p.m. and witnesses reported to seeing four people involved in the shooting. After authorities arrived, two men, identified as 47-year-old Perry Sueing and 22-year-old Delano Mathis were taken to a nearby hospital and later pronounced dead from their wounds sustained in the gunfight. The other two shooters have disappeared and are yet to be identified, and police are asking anyone with information to come forward. No other information has been released at this time.

This is not the only criminal activity in the area, though. A suspect has been killed by police after a shootout on the I-17 on October 29. The suspect was wanted for attempted carjacking and was driving a stolen white pickup truck as he led state troopers on a high-speed chase through Phoenix. Bystanders were warned that the suspect may have a gun, which was confirmed when he began to fire shots at officers through the window of the truck. The Mesa Police Association described the ordeal as “an extremely violent suspect who showed absolutely zero regard for innocent civilians when he opened fire in the middle of the freeway” (AZ Central).

The chase lasted about an hour when police responded to a call about a suspicious man with a white truck near 200 East First Avenue about a suspicious man in a white truck. When police pulled up to investigate, he pulled out and drove away, with police units on his tail. He drove onto the I-10 where units backed off and he was followed by a helicopter. On the I-10, police units caught back up with him when the freeway was closed. The chase ended when one of the officers pitted the truck and it spun backward, hitting the wall. Officers soon engaged the suspect in a shootout.

The suspect was shot several times, and when he finally surrendered to police, it was found that he had succumbed to his injuries. Three police officers were injured during the shootout, but none by gunfire. All three were injured when the windows on their squad cars were shot and they were showered with glass. Two of the three were transferred to a local hospital and soon released, and it was released that all three have minor, non-life threatening injuries. The suspect and the officer’s names have yet to be released. This event on Monday has brought the number of officer-involved shootings to 71 this year.
