Authorities say a heavy law enforcement presence on Interstate 10 in the West Valley is connected with a shooting scene near 111th Avenue and Indian School Road. 

Video from Air15 showed multiple Phoenix police officers with guns drawn as two people got out of a silver Jeep on I-10 near 75th Avenue. 

Phoenix Police Sgt. Trent Crump said officers responded around 4:30 p.m. for a report of a shooting near a home. That's where they found a man who had been shot multiple times, including in the chest and face. 

The vehicle stopped on the interstate was seen leaving the area, Crump said. The vehicle was of interest to police in connection with the shooting. 

The victim, who was taken to the hospital in critical condition, was being "somewhat" uncooperative with detectives, according to Crump.
