Authorities have released the names of two people killed after being shot in a mobile home park on the outskirts of Phoenix.

Maricopa County Sheriff’s officials announced Tuesday that the two victims have been identified as 45-year-old Armando Cardona and 35-year-old Naome Innis.

They were among eight people shot Monday night at the mobile home park in Laveen.

Authorities say a total of eight people were shot in a mobile home park on the outskirts of Phoenix and that two adult victims are dead.

The Phoenix Fire Department previously said six people were shot Monday night but Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio provided the higher number during a Tuesday news conference.

Arpaio says investigators are trying to determine what might have prompted the shooting, which occurred outside the Phoenix city limits. He’s asking the public for information.

Four children are among the six injured who have non-life-threatening injuries, including a 2-year-old. The Fire Department previously said that child was a 1-year-old.

No identities have been released.

Officials say it may have been difficult for neighbors to pick up on the shooting if they confused gunshots with fireworks.

Authorities say a shooting on the outskirts of Phoenix has left two adults dead and four other people wounded, including two teens and a 1-year-old who was shot in the arm.

There’s no immediate word on what might have prompted the Monday night shooting and identities haven’t been released.

The Phoenix Fire Department says the 1-year-old and the other three wounded people are expected to survive their wounds from the shooting.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the shooting, which occurred in a mobile home park in a part of the Laveen area outside the Phoenix city limits.

The Sheriff’s Office didn’t immediately respond to a request for additional information.
