At around 9:15 a.m. on the morning of March 24, officers responded to reports of a shooting at a home near 43rd and Glendale avenues. When officers got there, they found a man who had been shot.

The victim, Kenneth McNie, 59, died at the scene, says Phoenix Police Sgt. Brian Bowers.

This investigation will be reviewed by the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office for any charging," Bowers said.
