PHOENIX -- Police are investigating a shooting outside a Phoenix bar that left one man dead and another wounded Friday night.

Police said 32-year-old Thomas Allen Marcussen and a 44-year-old man were sitting on a bench outside Zipps Sports Grill on Bethany Home Road near 16th Street when they were shot.

Jessica Wood, 29, allegedly approached the men shortly before midnight and opened fire.

A bystander reportedly grabbed the woman, disarmed her and held her on the ground until police arrived.

Both men were taken to a local hospital, where Marcussen succumbed to his injuries. The other man's condition was unknown Saturday morning.

Investigators have found no relationship between Wood and the two men and have not identified a motive for the shooting. She did appear intoxicated at the time, according to police.

Wood was still being processed for booking Saturday morning, but police said she would be held on murder charges.

The investigation is ongoing.
