UPDATE: Wednesday morning

1 dead, 3 wounded

PHOENIX -- The search continues Wednesday morning for the suspects in a quadruple shooting that left one person dead and three more wounded.

It happened Tuesday night at a condo near 32nd and Northern avenues. Officers responded to a shots-fired call shortly before 8:30 p.m.

When they arrived on the scene, police found that four people had been shot. One of those victims died on the scene. He has been identified as Trevor Metheny, 17.

According to a woman who said it was her brother who was killed, the shooting was in retaliation over a girl. Police have not confirmed that.

According to Det. Stacie Derge of the Phoenix Police Department, investigators are still trying to sort out the details, but they believe the shooting might have been drug related.

Neighbors said the whole incident was unsettling.

At this point, the descriptions of the suspects are fairly vague. Investigators are looking three Hispanic males. They are between 15 and 17 years old and have short hair. Police said they were armed either with rifles or shotguns.

The other victims have not been officially identified. Police say a 17-year-old and an 18-year-old are listed in stable condition and a 62-year-old man is in critical condition.
