Office Complex Shooting: Several Shot In Phoenix

By: Amanda Crum - January 30, 2013

A shooting inside a Phoenix office complex today left several people wounded, although details surrounding the incident are sketchy at this time.

Police say an altercation occurred inside the building before shots were fired, and they believe the suspect may have left the scene in a white vehicle, though nothing has been confirmed. The building has been evacuated and there are searches underway for the suspect. Investigators are using police dogs to aid them at the scene.

The shooting comes at a time when the issue of gun control is a hot–and controversial–topic; President Obama and Vice President Biden have been working to change the gun laws in some states after the deadly tragedy in Newtown in December, when 26 people were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Since that day, several shootings have been reported across the country, including some in schools.

We will update this article with more information as it becomes available.


Early reports say as many as five people were injured, with three of them sustaining “life threatening” wounds. The shooting came mere hours after former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords delivered a statement before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the need for more gun control.

    We need more gun free work zones. It would be a terrible thing for someone to kill these CRAZY dirtbags before they can take out masses of people. Counseling and consequences–NTOT GUN CONTROL!

    Ever stop to think that if someone is going to kill someone they will do it no matter what the law, only honest sane people follow the rules ..A bomb in a school is even more deadly, and there is no way that can be stopped if some nut decides to do it, and bombs are even more deadly. I think every school should have a bullet proof entrance room with metal detection and no one is admitted without a scan, even if they are known by the staff Cost? who cares
