Globe police are investigating a shooting at a bar that left three people dead.

The shooting occurred at the Jammerz bar near Ash Street and Hackney Avenue late Sunday night. Around 10:30 p.m., police say a lone gunman walked in and opened fire. 

Police tell ABC15 four people were shot during the incident and two of those people, a 22-year-old man, and a 44-year-old woman, were killed at the scene.

Several days later on Thursday, 22-year-old Ashley Sanchez passed away at the hospital. Ashley’s mother and two younger sisters made the decision to end her life support. On top of the recent loss, Ashley’s father passed away just three weeks before the shooting from an illness, according to the family.

On Tuesday, police said the man killed was Daniel Albo, and the 44-year-old-woman was Cristi Licano.

Family members said Licano worked at Jammerz but was not working at the time of the shooting. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help her family pay for funeral expenses.

GoFundMe pages have also been established for the family of Daniel Albo and for the family of Ashley Sanchez. You can also donate at any Wells Fargo bank by mentioning “the Ashley Sanchez benefit donation fund” and “the Danny Albo benefit memorial fund.”

"I kept getting phone calls and I couldn't believe it, it's like the worst thing ever," said Chris Mejia, a family member of one of the victims. "That's my family, that's my cousin, we grew up together since we were kids. She had a heart of gold, ever since she was little."

The other person injured in the shooting, Charlene Peak, remained hospitalized in stable condition, officials said.

A fifth person, Scott Mills, was shot at in the incident but not injured, police said Tuesday.

In a briefing held Monday afternoon, police said 22-year-old Sterling Hunt was taken into custody on the San Carlos Apache Nation on unrelated charges but is considered the only suspect for the shooting. 

Police say this appears to be an isolated act of violence, according to information they have gathered, and investigators are not aware of any ongoing threats to the community.

"It doesn't even seem like reality," resident John Flores said. "I just...I pray for their peace, and everybody here I know is doing the exact same thing. This is how our community is. Our community is strong, we're a small community but when push comes to shove, our community, we bind together like a family."

Gila County Sheriff's Office posted that their officials were asked to assist with the scene, along with their Drug, Gang, and Violent Crimes Task Force. 

Police are asking anyone who was at the bar or knows something about what happened inside around the time of the shooting to call the Globe Police Department and speak with Detective Steve Williams.
