Mesa police have identified the victim in a Sunday morning shooting as 18-year-old Stephen Jacobo.
"The Mesa Police Department is actively investigating this homicide and welcomes any information about the identity of the suspect," police said Monday, the day after the shooting near 1700 West Emelita.
Police received a call early Sunday morning, Nov. 6, that gunshots were heard, and when they arrived at an apartment they found a man who had been shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
The person who notified police indicated “multiple people were running out of the apartment,” police said. But when police arrived the apartment was empty except for the victim.
An official said detectives are working to identify witnesses.
