Scottsdale Police Department officers responded to a “shots fired” call at 78th Street and Glenrosa Avenue on Monday, June 1, at 6:35 p.m. where a 14-year-old male is suspected of firing a handgun at two victims, officials say.

As officers arrived, they located two adult victims who were uninjured.

Four juvenile male suspects were also located and detained after they were found hiding in the area, according to police officials.

Investigators determined that the victims and the suspects were involved in a verbal argument across the street from one another.

One of the suspects, a 14-year-old male, threatened the victims and then fired two rounds from a handgun at the victims.

One of the rounds struck an unoccupied parked car in the area.

The suspects then fled the area on foot, police say.

Officers were able to recover the handgun and identify the suspect who tired the rounds.

The investigation is on-going, and no further details are available at this time, police say.
