PEORIA, Ariz. – Peoria police are asking for the public's help to identify three suspects in connection with a shooting earlier this month.

According to police, two men and a woman contacted a 57-year-old Peoria resident regarding a property dispute at around 2 p.m. on Feb. 1. One of the suspects was storing a trailer on the man's property with the permission of his adult son.

An argument ensued and one of the suspects fired a small handgun through the metal security door, striking the man in the leg.

The suspects fled the area in a gray or dark-colored late '90s or early 2000's Pontiac Grand Prix four-door sedan. 

The victim was transported to a local hospital where he was treated and released. 

The shooter is described as a white male, 40 to 50 years old, 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 11 inches tall and 190 to 200 pounds. He wears glasses and has a closely shaved head with a receding hairline.

The second suspect is described as a white male, 25 to 30 years old, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall and 175 to 200 pounds. He has a shaved head, a dark goatee and many tattoos on both arms. Police said he goes by the nickname "Mighty Whitey" and his real name may be Chris.

The third suspect is a white female, 25 to 30 years old with dark hair in a ponytail, black rimmed eyeglasses and tattoos covering her arms and chest.
