PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Just after 3:30 a.m. Saturday, a 911 operator got a call that somebody heard gunshots at an apartment complex near Interstate 17 and Bethany Home Road.

"We were in a dead sleep, and we heard two gunshots,” said Jeri Anderson, who ended up being curious and grabbed her son to check it out. “I saw a young girl running out and a guy running after her, and a lot of screaming.”

When officers arrived, they said they found a man with at least one gunshot wound. It was an injury that later took his life.

Police spent the day looking for witnesses and said Saturday morning they had plenty of people who saw a group running away, but no one who actually saw the actual shooting.

For Anderson, this isn't the first time she woke up to gunfire near her home.

“This area of town, this is common," she said.

At this time, police have not released the identity of the man who was shot and ask if you know anything about this to please give them a call.
