GOLDEN VALLEY, AZ — Mohave County Sheriff's Office is investigating a homicide after one person was killed and another was injured during a shooting in Golden Valley Sunday afternoon.

Golden Valley is approximately 11 miles west of Kingman, Arizona.

Around 12:30 p.m. Sunday, MCSO received a call about two people who had gunshot wounds near Hope Road off of SR 68.

The two people were immediately transported to the hospital, where one later died, according to officials.

The victim killed has been identified as 33-year-old Michael Walker.

Upon investigation, MCSO says they discovered the shooting happened at a residence more than five miles away from where deputies found the two victims with injuries.

The two who had been shot went to the residence and got into an argument inside, according to MCSO.

MCSO says the two allegedly tried to get into a bedroom and that's when the shooting happened.

There was only one bullet fired and it hit both people, according to MCSO.

Police say they are still searching for the alleged shooter, 28-year-old Jeffrey Byung Hwi Glinos. Another man, 37-year-old Phillip Carey, has been arrested for allegedly attempting to clean up the scene and hide evidence.

This incident is still under investigation.
