A man was taken to a trauma center where he died after being shot at a motel, officials said. 

According to the Phoenix Fire Department, a man was shot multiple times near Interstate 17 and McDowell Road while at the Knights Inn Motel shortly before midnight on Friday night. The man was taken to a hospital in critical condition. 

The Phoenix Police Department said the man later died. It's not clear who shot him, and anyone with any information is encouraged to contact Silent Witness at (480) WITNESS or the Phoenix Police Department. 

Detectives are still investigating, however they said this does not appear to be tied to the string of recent shootings in the West Valley.
