Glendale police: Man dies after being found impaled on fence

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Police in Glendale say they’re investigating the death of man found impaled on a fence outside an apartment complex.

Officers were called to the scene around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday and say the man’s body was hanging upside down from the metal fencing.
