Police have identified the suspect in a fatal shooting in a Fry’s parking lot in Avondale as Manuel Morales-Estrada, 29, officials said.
Morales-Estrada allegedly shot and killed a man just before 10 p.m. Thursday in the shopping center at Avondale Boulevard and Buckeye Road, said Officer Ray Emmett, a spokesman with the Avondale Police Department.
The victim was identified as Erick Dominguez, 23, Emmett said.
When officers responded to the shopping center for reports of shots fired, they found shell casings in the parking lot, he said.
Witnesses reported several vehicles and people involved in the incident had fled the scene, Emmett said.
Dominguez, who was shot once in the torso with a handgun, was driven to a nearby fire station by his brother, he said.
He was transported to a local hospital, where he died in surgery, Emmett said.
No other injuries were reported, he said.
