PHOENIX - A shooting suspect is on the loose after a home invasion in south Phoenix Tuesday night that left three people in the hospital.
Sgt. Trent Crump with the Phoenix Police Department said it appears two men attempted a home invasion in the area of 7th Street and Southern Avenue.
A detective at the scene said two brothers, identified by Crump as a 15-year-old and an 18-year-old, were at a home with an uncle when the two suspects entered the residence. Crump said the two brothers resisted the attack.
Both brothers and one of the suspects were shot. The uncle was not hurt. The second suspect got away.
Jason Holloway lives next door. He said he heard eight gunshots and came outside to find the injured suspect on the ground.
"I'd never seen him before," Holloway said. Holloway said the man couldn't feel his legs and needed help. Holloway said he called 911.
According to police, the injured suspect is in serious condition. The two brothers are expected to survive.
Police are still searching for the second suspect as of Wednesday morning. He is described as a thin black male between 5 feet 10 inches tall and 6 feet tall. He was reportedly wearing a red and black sweatshirt, jeans, and a ball cap.
Crump said the home invasion might be drug-related and detectives have obtained a search warrant for the property.
