PHOENIX - Three schools were put on lockout as police searched for a suspect in a west Phoenix shooting.
Phoenix police said a man was found shot in the neck near 57th and Campbell avenues around noon on Thursday.
Police said they are still looking for the 40-year-old man who got away on a BMX bicycle.
Police said the victim, a 48-year-old man, was taken to the hospital where he later died.
He was found shot in front of a house, according to police. The suspect and victim may know each other.
The schools on lockout included John F. Long Elementary School, Mark T. Atkinson Middle School and Mission High School.
Police said the lockout meant outsiders were not allowed onto school property. Parents were allowed to pick up their children at the end of the school day.
Neighbors anxiously watched as police canvassed their neighborhood.
“Everyone knows where everyone lives. So it's just kind of scary to see this going on, where there's always kids outside playing together,” said Jasmine Bojorquez.
If you have any information regarding this incident, you are asked to call the Phoenix Police Department.
