GLENDALE, AZ — Police have now identified an employee at Integrity Solutions, a Glendale company that handles staffing for Amazon facilities who was fatally shot and the suspect who was later wounded by police.

They say 40-year-old Julius Grant went to the Integrity Staffing Solutions on Monday because he was upset with a pay issue.

Police say Grant entered an office where 50-year-old Scott Isaacson was meeting with two other employees. They say Grant shot Isaacson multiple times without provocation and fled the scene. Isaacson, a Phoenix resident, was taken to a hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Grant was later spotted in a car in west Phoenix and was shot by two Glendale police officers.

A day after his father's death, Scott's son Jordan Isaacson, 30, shared more about his dad, and who he was as a person. "He was sincerely a selfless person," said Jordan Isaacson. "A superfine soul."

Scott moved to Phoenix about four months ago with his husband of 15 years and their adopted son.

"He was always smiling and has like a funny, mischievous grin on him because he's always doing something funny, making people laugh," said Jordan. "He's always the one to bring everyone together."

Integrity Staffing released the following statement following Scott's death:

"Scott Isaacson, one of our Integrity family members, was fatally injured yesterday. Scott has been a part of the Integrity team for six amazing years. While he started his journey with us as a recruiter in 2013, Scott most recently held the role of an Area Manager, overseeing multiple branches for the company. He was well-respected and admired by his team and his peers. Scott wasn’t just a team member—he was our friend—and we are simply heartbroken that he is no longer with us."

"You know his job was helping people, said Jordan. "He's not the type of guy who deserved anything like this."
