A shooting at a northwest valley apartment complex left a man dead and a woman hospitalized.
Metro Homicide Lieutenant Lew Roberts says it happened just after 1:00 Saturday afternoon at the Evergreen Apartments on West Cheyenne Avenue near Michael Way, after a fight with several men who exchanged words with the victims and opened fire. The unidentified man was killed, while the woman was shot in the foot and taken to University Medical Center for surgery. Roberts says the shooting may have been gang-related or the result of a fight with neighbors. The shooter has been described as a heavyset black male in his early to mid-20’s, five foot-eight, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black jacket and white T-shirt. The suspect and another man were seen driving a silver or white four-door compact car. If you have any information that can help, call Metro Homicide or Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.
