MESA, Ariz. – One person was shot in the chest and a second was stabbed four times in the back during a fight at a Mesa home Sunday night.

It happened just before 10 p.m. in the area of Baseline and Sossaman roads.

According to Mesa Police Sgt. Ed Wessing, four men showed up at the home and started a fight.

It was in the course of that fight that the shooting and stabbing occurred.

The shooting victim was driven by a friend to Banner Baywood Hospital. He was then transferred by ground ambulance to Good Samaritan Hospital. He has been admitted for observation.

The stabbing victim was air-lifted to Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn. At least check, he was in critical but stable condition.

It’s not clear if the suspects knew the residents of the home, nor is it known what the fight was about.
