Family: Third victim in Maryvale shooting dies

MARYVALE - A third victim in a serious deadly shooting in Maryvale last month has died, according to family.

Family says 33-year-old Stefanie Ellis, who was critically injured by more than a dozen gunshot wounds, has passed away.

Two other victims, 31-year-old Angela Linner and 12-year-old Maleah Ellis, died from their injuries after the June shooting near 63rd Avenue and McDowell Road.

This deadly shooting is one in a series of deadly shootings in the area that police have yet to solve.

In this case, witnesses reported seeing a man leaving the area in a light-colored sedan. The man was only described as a medium-build, Hispanic man in his thirties. He was reportedly wearing red shorts and a white shirt, and had a semi-automatic gun.

"Fourteen bullets in one. Twelves bullets in the other one. Eight bullets in the other. 32 bullets and three people. They just stood there and just made sure they was dead. Shot them to death it's crazy," said one concerned family member who asked not to be identified.

Thursday, Ellis' cousin urged anyone who knows something about what happened to talk to law enforcement.

"If you know something please come forward so this don't have to happen to another family," said Catherine Robinson-Clark. "So that another family don't have to feel the hurt that we're feeling right now."

Those would like to donate to help the family can do so through a GoFundMe account that has been set up.

Anyone with information about the triple shooting or any of the other recent deadly Maryville shootings is asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS. A growing reward for helpful information is available.
