PHOENIX - Authorities are still searching for the gunman in the fatal shooting of two bail bondsmen in northwest Phoenix.
Phoenix police say 37-year-old David Brickert and 39-year-old Wesley Kampen were found dead at the scene Monday night near an apartment.
Police say the two men from Sanctuary Bail Bonds were there to take 25-year-old Anthony Brian Giunta into custody after he skipped on bail.
They say Guinta was handcuffed by the bondsmen before another man showed up and fatally shot the victims.
Guinta and the shooter fled the scene, but police say Guinta was arrested hours later.
He was being held Tuesday on suspicion of misconduct with a weapon, aggravated assault and resisting arrest.
Police say Giunta is being uncooperative with investigators and hasn't given any information on the suspected shooter.
Sanctuary Bail Bonds issued the following statement Tuesday:
We are saddened by the loss of two of our Sanctuary Bail Bonds family members. David leaves behind a beautiful family, his fiancé and two young children. Wesley also leaves behind his son. We will do what we can to support the family as we all go through this difficult time. We have set up a fund to help support the family and pay for funeral costs. Donations can be made on our website .
The relatively small bondsmen community is mourning the deaths of two of their own.
"They just got caught off guard," said John Burns who is head of the local bondsmen association. "You just don't expect someone to come up from behind and open fire. It is a dangerous job, no doubt about it."
