Armed Robbery & Aggravated Assault Suspects

Surveillance photos of two of the suspects.
On January 14, 2014 at 7:10 pm, two victims were leaving their apartment in the 900 block of East Southern to get food. While walking to the car, the victims passed by two male suspects sitting on an electric box. The suspects got up and attempted a carjacking by demanding the keys to the vehicle. Two other male suspects exited a brown or gold SUV and assisted with the attempted robbery. At least one of the suspect was armed with a handgun and shot one of the victims, resulting in life-threatening injuries. A .40 caliber shell casing was found at the scene. The second victim was struck in the head with a blunt object, possibly the handgun.

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.
