PHOENIX — A man has been arrested after two men were shot with one dead from his injuries in west Phoenix.

Detectives say they developed probable cause to arrest Juan Borbon-Hurtado, 52, for his involvement in the shooting.

Officials with the Phoenix Police Department say officers responded to reports of shots fired at a home on Pierce Street, near 39th Avenue and Roosevelt Street.

Neighbors initially called 911 around 2:00 a.m. Sunday claiming they heard arguing and then gunshots.

When officers arrived they found two men with gunshot wounds.

Paramedics with the Phoenix Fire Department transported both victims to a hospital for treatment.

One of the men, later identified as 33-year-old Antonio Rios, was pronounced dead at the hospital. The other victim, a 41-year-old male, is said to have suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Borbon-Hurtado remained at the scene and was detained by police.

Police are still investigating what led up to the shooting but believe the men are known to each other and were hanging out prior to the shooting.

Borbon-Hurtado was booked into jail for murder and aggravated assault.

The investigation remains ongoing.
