Police: Worker found dead at Maricopa company

MARICOPA, AZ - An investigation is underway Tuesday after a man was found dead at a Maricopa business early Tuesday.

According to Maricopa police, officers responded to a 911 call from Arizona Grain near Cowtown and Porter roads around 2:45 a.m. after a caller said a worker had been shot.

Officers arrived to find 26-year-old Orlando Requean dead.

During a Tuesday afternoon press conference, police said Requean was working in the loading area when someone drove up, snuck up behind him and fired several shots.

Police said it appears there was no confrontation prior to the incident, and nothing was stolen from the victim.

Requean's body was reportedly found by another employee early Tuesday morning.

No suspect information is available at this time.

Police said they do not believe the shooting was a random act, but instead think Requean may have been targeted.

Union Pacific Railroad police and officers with the Arizona Department of Public Safety are assisting with the investigation.
