Glendale police are investigating a deadly shooting that occurred just before midnight Tuesday.

Police responded to the 55 Urban apartments near 55th Avenue and Camelback Road for a ShotSpotter activation call.

When police officers arrived on the scene, they located a man who had been shot.

Paramedics treated the unidentified man at the scene but he did not survive.

“The investigation is ongoing but preliminary information is this was not a random shooting, but possibly drug related incident,” Officer Tiffany Smith of the Glendale Police Department said in an email response to our inquiry.

Police have not released a suspect description.

ShotSpotter is a system that collects data for illegal gunfire use.
