A man who attempted to stop a fight in Glendale between a group of men ended up getting shot, police say. 

The Glendale Police Department said around 1:47 p.m. near 58th Avenue and Camelback Road, an altercation involving several people broke out. One person pulled out a gun during the altercation, and the fight came to a halt. 

However, police say a short time after the first incident, four men who were traveling in a white vehicle pulled a weapon on the same subject who was involved in the fight. 

At that time, a 35-year-old man intervened and ended up getting shot. 

A neighbor in the area said she was outside with her children when she saw the fight break out involving a man. 

"He was beating up on a girl, so some of the people from the neighborhood came to try to help her, and in the midst of him helping her is when we heard the gunshots," Marchae McCrey said. 

The woman said she heard about six gunshots. 

The man was transported to a hospital. He sustained non-life threatening injuries. 

Police tell ABC15 they do not have anyone in custody at the moment.
