GLENDALE, AZ — An 18-year-old and a 16-year-old were arrested Thursday after a man was shot at a Glendale restaurant Wednesday night.

Officers were called to the scene near 43rd Avenue and Bethany Home Road around 11 p.m. where a man was found with a gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and later died, police announced.

Police say 18-year-old Marzeal Lewis and the 16-year-old suspect approached 30-year-old Guadalupe Zamora outside of a restaurant and attempted to rob him at gunpoint. Police say Lewis "pistol-whipped" the victim and his gun discharged at the same time. The 16-year-old then fired a weapon and shot both Lewis and Zamora.

Zamora did not survive from his injuries. Lewis was injured and released from the hospital.

The 16-year-old suspect has not been identified at this time because he is a minor.
