South Phoenix shooting, police chase ends with with one dead, another injured
PHOENIX - Four people were detained after a deadly shooting led to a police chase in south Phoenix early Sunday morning, but later were determined to be unrelated to the shooting.
Officers responded to a shooting call near 26th Street and South Mountain Avenue and found a man who had been shot. The victim, 23-year-old Steven Magana, died from his injuries, and another man was injured but expected to be OK.
