PHOENIX (AP) - Phoenix police say a 29-year-old man is dead following a shooting outside his apartment.

Sgt. Trent Crump says officers responding to the shooting Wednesday night found several people trying to load the victim into a vehicle to take him to a hospital. Paramedics then arrived, treated the man and took him to a hospital where he later died.

Crump says investigators are investigating whether drugs were a possible motive for the shooting.

He says witnesses reported seeing a heavy-set man whom police consider a possible suspect running away from the scene.
