2nd victim to die in Downtown Phoenix shooting incident remembered

PHOENIX (KSAZ) -- A second victim in last Friday's shooting in Downtown Phoenix has died.

The incident happened early Friday, and the two men were heading home, which was right up the street from where they were working in Downtown Phoenix. The shooting happened near 3rd Avenue and Roosevelt, and Phoenix Police is still searching for who did this.

"David [Bessent] would give me art supplies to drive with, and we'd sit over there and we'd draw," said one woman. "Monday, we'd have draw night here."

News of 41-year-old Bessent's death was announced Wednesday.

"He wanted to travel," said the woman. "He wanted to go live in different places in the world at the time, he didn't feel tied down. He just talked about how it was nice to build communities with people."

The other victim in this incident, 24-year-old Zak Walter, died at the scene. Both were walking home from work at Jobot Coffee.

"No one deserves to die like that, but he was absolutely, completely harmless," said another woman. "Understanding, open-minded, peaceful."

As the investigation continues, a memorial for the two continues to grow outside of the coffee shop where they made friends who were like family. These friends still trying to come to terms with this devastating loss.

The only information we know of is that a white Dodge Durango was seen in the area during the shooting. The motive of the shooting is still unknown, and police are still looking for whoever was involved. Anyone with information should call police.
