PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — Homicide detectives are investigating a shooting that left a man dead outside a north Phoenix fast food restaurant early Sunday morning.

Officers responded to the area of 3rd Street and Dunlap Avenue around 4 a.m. and arrived to find a man who had been shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators learned that it started as a fight between two customers in the drive-thru lane of a 24-hour restaurant, and escalated when one of the men pulled out a gun and shot the other. The suspect drove away before officers arrived. Video from the scene showed a heavy police presence in the parking lot of Julioberto’s Fresh Mexican Food.

No arrests have been made yet, and anyone with information is asked to call Phoenix police, or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (480-TESTIGO for Spanish speakers).
