PHOENIX — Police say four people were seriously injured, including two children, after a shooting near 16th Street and McDowell Road Friday night.

At about 9:30 p.m. Friday, officers responded to an apartment complex in the area for a shooting.

Authorities arrived at the scene and found four people with injuries. All four people were taken to a nearby hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say the suspect left the scene before officers arrived.

Witnesses reported to authorities that the shooting was related to an ongoing feud between neighbors.

Detectives later found that the two adults, a 31-year-old woman and a 29-year-old man, were hit by gunfire, but the 3-year-old girl and 3-year-old boy were injured by debris during the shooting.

The suspect's description is currently unknown.

An investigation remains ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Phoenix Police Department or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
