GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -

Authorities say an employee at a Glendale company that handles staffing for Amazon facilities was fatally shot and the suspect was later wounded by police.

Glendale police didn’t immediately identify the 40-year-old suspect in Monday’s shooting, but say his injuries aren’t life-threatening and he’ll be arrested on suspicion of murder upon his hospital release.

They say the suspect is believed to be a former employee of Integrity Staffing Solutions that handles hiring for Amazon facilities in the Phoenix metro area.

The victim’s name wasn’t immediately released.

Police say the suspect was involved in a disagreement with someone at the company around 9:30 a.m. Monday and fled the scene after firing multiple shots.

The victim later died at a hospital.

Glendale police say the suspect was later spotted in west Phoenix and was shot by two officers.
