PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a man who was fatally shot outside a Phoenix motel last week.

Phoenix police say they are still searching for a suspect in the drive-by shooting of 25-year-old Fernando Chavez.

They say the shooting occurred around 11:30 p.m. Friday at the Knights Inn near Black Canyon Highway and Sweetwater Avenue.
