PHOENIX - A 15-year-old girl is dead following a shooting in central Phoenix late Sunday night and a teen boy is in police custody.
Officers responded to a shooting call at a home near 7th Avenue and Broadway just before 11 p.m. on Jan. 14.
"When officers arrived, they found a female with a gunshot wound. She was transported to the hospital where she later died from her injuries," read a portion of the statement. "Officers spoke with multiple people inside the home during the shooting, but they provided limited information."
That victim has been identified by police as Daniella Espinosa, 15.
Another shooting victim was taken to the hospital and does not have life-threatening injuries.
"They learned there was a teenaged male suspect inside the home with a firearm just prior to the incident. The suspect was seen manipulating the firearm that resulted in multiple shots being fired that struck the two victims," police said.
The suspect is accused of second-degree murder, aggravated assault and weapons charges.
The gun in this case was recovered by police.
