Police ID two men killed in shooting in uptown Phoenix

Two men are dead and another is wounded after a shootout at a condominium complex in Phoenix.

The incident occurred around 5 p.m. Monday at the 3rd Avenue Palms near Osborn Road.

Police said one man was found dead at the scene while another man was taken to a hospital in extremely critical condition. He was later pronounced dead. A third man suffered wounds not considered life threatening. Police said one of the victims was found in a stairwell between the condos.

Police on Wednesday identified the two deceased victims as Allen Suarez, 23, and Cash Benally, 20. The injured man is 33. There is no information concerning their relationship or their involvement in this incident.

Police said a dispute between occupants of two condo units led to a shooting, although it is unclear what exactly they argued about.

Police said several people fled the condo on foot after the shooting.

Detectives are still reaching out to the community for information.
