PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Police say a man is dead and another person was detained after a shooting broke out in a north Phoenix neighborhood late Monday night. Officers say it happened around 9:15 p.m. near 17th Avenue and Angela Drive, just north of Bell Road.

Authorities arrived and found a man seriously hurt who died on the scene from his injuries. Police later identified him as James Hendrickson, 65.

Sgt. Melissa Soliz says the shooter made several statements of self-defense to investigators while he was detained and was later released pending further investigation. Video from the scene showed the passenger window of a car completely shattered with crime tape blocking off a considerable portion of the street.

Investigators are still trying to learn what led up to the shooting. No other information has been released.
