His daughter released the following statement:

“On January 22, 2018, I unexpectedly lost my father Julian M. Hackett to a senseless act of violence. He left behind 3 grandchildren and 2 children. His death was sudden and a terrible loss to us all. The responsibility of his service has fallen on me and my family and I pray that you find it in your heart to help us with the travel and memorial expenses.”

There is also a GoFundMe page set up to help with funeral expenses.

Police said the shooting occurred outside in the parking lot of the bar. The parking lot was taped off while police conduct their investigation.

Officers were seen speaking to several upset witnesses. They were advised of a male subject who was seen running from the shooting scene. Police released a vague description of the man -- 5 feet 5 inches tall with a thin build.

Officers and K9 units checked the area for the potential suspect.

No other information was made available.

Police said they are hoping somebody has information that will help them solve this deadly crime. If you know anything, please contact the Glendale Police Department at 623-930-3000 or through Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
