PEORIA, AZ - Police are investigating after a 26-year-old man was found shot at a Peoria apartment complex Thursday night.
Peoria police spokeswoman Amanda Jacinto said the shooting happened just after 5 p.m. near 95th and Olive Avenues.
Jacinto said two men got into a fight at the complex and one shot the other with a handgun.
Authorities told ABC15 the victim was transported to the hospital in critical condition with injuries to his upper body area. Jacinto said he made it through surgery and is expected to survive.
Police said they found the victim's nine-month-old baby girl at the apartment with the man. Officials say the baby was not injured and was turned over to her mother. It is unclear at this time if the girl's parents lived together.
Jacinto said police are currently interviewing a 23-year-old person of interest in the case.
