The Phoenix Police Department says a man was shot and killed overnight near 11th Avenue and Hatcher Road.

Police say the victim was shot several times early Sunday and was taken to the hospital but didn’t survive.

Police found the person they believe to be the only suspect hiding in the back seat of a car in the area and that person has been taken into custody.

Earlier in the morning a search was done in the neighborhood and two people were quickly detained. Police have now said that those two people were released and are not connected to the shooting.

It's still unclear what led to the shooting.

The identities of the victim and suspect have not been released.
