The suspects were seen running westbound out of the apartment complex. During an area check, a handgun was located buried in the gravel near a storage shed in the parking lot of an LDS church west of the incident location. The handgun had been reported stolen from a residential burglary that occurred in Phoenix. All suspects are believed to be Hispanic males. Two suspects were captured on video surveillance after hopping the wall from the church into the business lot to the west.
Two of the suspects were described as 20-22 years old, 6' tall, having somewhat muscular or larger builds, black hair, facial scruff, wearing black hooded sweatshirts.
The suspect vehicle is described as a gold or brown SUV; possibly a Jeep Cherokee. It is possible a white Chrysler sedan could have also been involved.
