"No one was injured in the shooting, but there was property damage to nearby businesses and vehicles parked on Indian Plaza," Scottsdale Police said.

Detectives learned the shooting stemmed from a verbal fight between two groups.

"During the initial investigation, guns were found in a nearby vehicle and Riley and Masters were identified as two of the suspects involved in the shooting. At this point in the investigation, it appears this was an isolated incident between two groups of individuals that started as a verbal altercation that escalated into a shooting," police said.

The next day, detectives went back to the scene of the shooting to look for more evidence and possible footage from security cameras.

"More arrests are possible," police said.

Riley was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on suspicion of discharging a firearm in city limits, discharging a firearm at a non-residential structure, endangerment, and criminal damage. Masters was booked into the Scottsdale City Jail on suspicion of discharging a firearm in city limits, endangerment, and criminal damage.
