A suspect is in custody after horseplay caused the death of a 23-year-old man in Phoenix.

Phoenix police said officers responded to the area of 19th Avenue and Dunlap Avenue for a reported traffic crash involving a pedestrian. 

As officers began to investigate, they determined the victim and the suspect were engaging in horseplay on the sidewalk before the crash. 

The suspect, 26-year-old Tyrone Turner, told police he pushed 23-year-old Terrance Veale whom then stumbled into the road and was hit by a vehicle. 

Veale's father, Frank, says he was notified of the accident early Friday morning. He explained that he does not know who Turner is. 

Turner was booked into jail for negligent homicide. 

A GoFundMe has been set up for Veale's family to cover the victim's funeral expenses:
