Members of the community gathered at Globe City Hall to hear what investigators had to say about the deadly shooting at Jammerz bar.

The shooting happened shortly before 11 p.m. at Jammerz bar, near Ash Street and Hackney Avenue.

Walters said three of the victims had gone outside to smoke a cigarette when Hunt went out and opened fire. All of them were playing pool before the shooting occurred. 

A 22-year-old man and a 44-year-old woman were killed. Two more women, both 22 years old, were badly wounded and taken to Phoenix-area hospitals.

"This is a one-time incident; we're unaware of any ongoing threats," Walters said. "This is a horrible tragedy."

Walters said investigators would not be releasing the names of the victims per the family's request.
