Tempe apartment shooting leaves two injured, suspect dead

Tempe police are investigating a shooting at an apartment complex that left the suspect dead, and two people injured.

Officers were called to the Omnia on 8th Apartments at around 11 p.m. on July 23 after someone discovered a person with a gunshot wound.

An investigation revealed that multiple residents had been fighting when someone started shooting, injuring two people. One of the victims was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries, and the other's condition is unknown.

The suspected shooter was found dead in his apartment from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police say.

Authorities say there is no threat to the public, and everyone involved has been accounted for. The investigation is ongoing.

Frank Kardasis says he's lived in the complex for three years, but hearing all of this, is a first.

"I just heard a bunch of cops for maybe hours just running through the neighborhood. You know, fire department, ambulance and all that. It sounded pretty hectic," he said. "It's a good complex, the area is a little can be shady at times as far as there are a lot of drug users in the area, but I really haven't had many issues with tenants or anything."
