PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- A woman is dead after being shot in a Phoenix neighborhood late Tuesday night.

Officers were called out to a shooting near 27th and Missouri Avenues around 11 p.m. Video from the scene showed a heavy police presence at a home near the intersection. Phoenix police said they found a woman, identified as Teana Yameka Pruitt, who had been shot and rushed her to the hospital. Pruitt later died.

Officers believe that there may have been an argument before the shooting happened, but no suspect identity has been released and no arrests have been made. An update is expected later Wednesday afternoon.
