The gunman behind a shooting that erupted Wednesday morning at an office building in Phoenix is believed to be an elderly man, police said.
Phoenix police initially said there were at least five people shot but have now confirmed that three people were injured.
One person was taken to a hospital in extremely critical condition. Two others were hospitalized for injuries that are not life-threatening, said Sgt. Tommy Thompson of the Phoenix Police Department. Other individuals were treated for stress-related symptoms.
It appears this was not a random shooting, he added.
“The early indication is that some sort of altercation transpired,” Thompson said.
The shooter is believed to be an elderly man, said Phoenix Police Sgt. Steve Martos. The gunman left the office complex in the 7300 block of 16th Street in a white vehicle, police said.
It appears nobody was fatally injured, Martos said, but that may change.
“It’s still a fluid situation right now," he added.
Television news footage showed people evacuating the complex and a person taken out on a gurney. Police and fire department units were on the scene.
