PHOENIX -- A killer is on the loose after gun shots ring out in east Phoenix.

It happened near 32nd Street and McDowell Road Saturday evening.

Neighbors heard the gunshots.

"It was pretty much one right after the other pop pop pop," said Jason.

Some neighbors stayed inside.

"I didn't want to walk outside because I didn't want to get shot," said a neighbor.

Jason said he couldn’t help taking a look.

"I heard three loud gunshots, and I jumped on the chair next to the back wall; all I could really see was somebody running down on the side street," said Jason. "Helicopters showed up, and a policeman jumped over the wall and asked us what we saw."

But Jason said he didn’t get a good look at the man he saw running.

"When I went around the corner there was someone lying in between the two houses,” said Jason. "The body looked like it was in the carport of the house behind us."

Once he saw that, "I thought it was time to probably go right back into the house,” he said.

Phoenix police said the victim was a man who rode his bike to the house and was shot after getting into a fight with someone near 30th Street and Palm.
