GLENDALE, AZ — Glendale police are investigating a deadly shooting involving a teenager Thursday night.

Glendale officials say they responded to the area of 75th and Glendale avenues after 9 p.m. for reports of a shooting. When they arrived on scene, they found a male who was suffering life-threatening injuries. A second person was found at a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

One of the victims, a 17-year-old, reportedly died from his injuries.

Detectives learned that two sets of people were in a verbal confrontation at the 75th and Glendale avenues scene, and shots were fired by both groups.

The two victims were reportedly from the opposing groups.

"There is no evidence or reports that this was a gang-related incident," police said Friday morning.

A portion of westbound Glendale Avenue is blocked for the investigation.
