PHOENIX – Police are searching for the person who shot a man four times in a Phoenix neighborhood Tuesday morning.

It happened at about 6:45 a.m. in the area of 24th Street and Broadway Road.

"We really don’t have a lot of details," Phoenix police Sgt. Tommy Thompson told 3TV's Yetta Gibson at 8 a.m. "Officers responded to a shots-fired call. When they got there, they found there was an individual who had knocked on some neighbors' doors, asking for help."

At this point, investigators believe the man was shot while standing in the street.

Police have not identified the victim, saying only that he is between 25 and 35 years old. They're not sure if he lives in the area.

"He wasn't able to tell the officers much, or the firefighters much," Thompson said.

The man was in extremely critical condition when paramedics rushed him to a local hospital.

At this point, detectives do not have any suspect information, nor do they know what led up to the shooting.

"Right now, we're hoping the community has some information," Thompson continued. "Maybe they heard the shots. Maybe they saw a vehicle leaving or somebody here."

If you know anything that might help detectives, please call the Phoenix Police Department Violent Crime Bureau at 602-262-6141 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (948-6277) or 1-800-343-TIPS (8477).
