Three people injured, one person in custody following shooting in Glendale

TUCSON - Police responded to reports of people being struck by gunfire at the Westgate Entertainment District in Glendale, Ariz. on Wednesday evening.

Officer Tiffany Ngalula of Glendale Police Department later reported in press briefing that three people were injured during this incident.

One person was reported to be in critical condition and the other two people have non-life threatening injuries, according to Ngalula.

Glendale PD said there are no reports of any active shooting and one suspect was taken into custody.

A description of the suspect has yet to be provided.

Glendale Police are conducting a secondary search for any other suspects or victims involved in this shooting.

The Westgate area has been shutdown to ensure the public is safe and businesses at Westgate are asked to shelter in place.

According to Officer Ngalula, there is currently a power outage at the Westgate Entertainment district so police are asking family members to stay home, even if they think a loved one may be at the scene.

Police are hoping they can hold another briefing with more information after the secondary search.

Furthermore, Glendale PD is asking anyone who saw social media posts concerning this shooting to send into Silent Witness.

Arizona Sen. Martín Quezada tweeted Wednesday that he had "witnessed an armed terrorist with an AR-15 shoot up Westgate. There are multiple victims."

However, those details have yet to be confirmed by authorities.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey released a statement Wednesday regarding the shooting at Westgate Entertainment District in Glendale, Ariz.

“We are in close contact with Glendale officials tonight, and monitoring this incident as more information becomes available.

First and foremost, our hearts and prayers are with the individuals and families impacted tonight, as well as the first responders and police officers who are on the scene. As we learn additional details, the state is here to continue to offer its full support to the victims and to the community.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety has been in regular communication with the Glendale Police Department and the State of Arizona stands ready to provide any resources and support needed."
