TEMPE, AZ — Police are investigating a deadly double shooting late Wednesday night in Tempe.

Officers were called to the area of Priest Drive and Broadway Road around 11:40 p.m. for a shooting call.

An 18-year-old man was found inside a vehicle with a gunshot wound, and a second shooting victim, a 19-year-old man, was also found outside the vehicle. Both were taken to the hospital for treatment, but police say the 18-year-old man died from his injuries. The second victim has life-threatening injuries, and as of Thursday afternoon, was listed in critical condition.

Neither of the victims have been identified yet.
