According to the Phoenix Police Department, a husband and father of a 4-year-old child was shot and killed in Glendale late Sunday night.

Police said the man, who was later identified as 34-year-old Allen Saka, was shot and transported to a nearby hospital. Shortly after, he was pronounced deceased.
