TEMPE, AZ — A man has died and two people were detained in connection to a shooting in the parking lot of the IKEA in Tempe Monday afternoon.

When authorities arrived at the parking lot near I-10 and Warner Road, sometime before 1:30 p.m., they located 21-year-old Chris Mcrimmin who was shot outside his vehicle in the back corner of the parking lot of the business.

Mcrimmin was transported for his injuries but has since died, according to Tempe police.

18-year-old Isaiah Williams, and another suspect who is 17 years old, were taken into custody in a neighborhood Wild Horse Trail and Leland Road in Maricopa in connection to the shooting.

Police say Mcrimmin and the suspects were meeting for a drug transaction when the altercation happened.

Both suspects face first-degree murder and aggravated robbery charges.
