Police identified a 14-year-old boy who was killed during a suspected drug-related robbery in a southeast Phoenix home early Saturday morning.
Frederico Aguilar, 14, was pronounced dead after being taken to a nearby hospital. Investigators believe Aguilar was just spending the night at the home and was not a target in the incident, Phoenix police Sgt. Trent Crump said.
Officers responded to reports of shots fired at a house on 47th Street, about a block south of Broadway Road, to find five victims.
Details on the attack are still unclear, but police said a group of two or three armed men entered the house and began shooting.
Along with Aguilar, another teen and three were men injured, police said.
One man in his early 20s was in critical condition and two other victims, a middle-aged man and a teenager, were treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Police did not say if the victims were shot.
There were other people in the residence at the time of the shooting who were not harmed, Sgt. Steve Martos said.
Another victim was treated for minor injuries stemming from a physical assault at a neighboring house and released from the hospital Saturday morning.
Initial interviews with eyewitnesses seemed to indicate the victims and attackers knew one another, Martos said, but police are still unsure of the relationship between the victims.
The attack may have spread to the street, Martos said, where the suspects allegedly assaulted a man that was sleeping in his car in front of a nearby house...
