MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

A 19-year-old man who was shot near 67th Avenue and McDowell Road Friday night has died.

Phoenix police said Manuel Castro-Garcia was in his car in front of a friend's house around 9:30 p.m. when a dark sedan stopped in the road next to him.

The victim and suspect were heard yelling at each other before shots were fired, Sgt. Jonathan Howard said.

Castro-Garcia drove away but crashed a few houses down. He was taken to a local hospital with gunshot injuries and has since died.

The suspect fled and has not been located.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Phoenix Police Department or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
