At least three people have been shot and five people injured at a Phoenix mortgage building Wednesday, with the gunman still on the loose.
Police say the shooting started around 10:30 a.m., My Fox Phoenix reports. The shooting is said to be a targeted attack, with the man coming into the business and looking for individuals. The man had some sort of altercation and started shooting.
“It was a little tense, everybody came and hid in the IT room,” said Mr. Hayter, who works at Pioneer Title Agency.
Phoenix police Sgt. Tommy Thompson told Fox that he had no reason to believe it was a random attack.
Officer James Holmes said that the victims were taken to nearby hospitals and that he did not know if their injuries were life-threatening.
The gunman is said to be a white man in his 60s, and his whereabouts are unknown. He was last seen driving away from the scene in a white Kia sport utility vehicle, according to police.
