PHOENIX (AP) - A 24-year-old passenger in a vehicle was fatally shot Friday night in west Phoenix after having an altercation with someone in another vehicle.

Police say Nicholas Salazar’s shooting death was the result of the altercation that occurred as both vehicles were on the road, though investigators are still examining specifically what the dispute centered on.

Investigators say the shooting suspect caused the vehicle driven by Salazar’s girlfriend to stop, then pistol-whipped and shot Salazar, and fled the scene.

Salazar’s girlfriend then drove her boyfriend to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
