PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5)-- Phoenix police are looking for two men involved in a deadly shooting early Saturday morning.

It happened just before 2 a.m. near McDowell Road and Interstate 17.

Police say Danzail Walton, 26, was standing at a parking lot exit when two men stopped their late model, blue Chevy sedan near him.

A man got out of the car and there was a short verbal exchange. A man inside the car shot Walton. 

A security guard returned fire and believed his rounds struck the vehicle as it fled the scene. 

Walton was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The investigation is ongoing.

Phoenix police released a composite sketch of the shooter. He is 5'5" to 5'8" tall, 180 to 250 pounds, between 20 and 30 years old. 

The vehicle description is a dark blue Chevy Impala.

Anyone with any information is urged to call Phoenix police at 602-262-6151 or if they wish to remain anonymous, they can contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO for Spanish.

I don't know- why?

YoureAnIgnoramous

Azfamily is overrun by racist KKK sympathizers, where race-baiting snowflakes go unmoderated yet calling a N@zi a N@zi isn't met with censorship.

Have you ever considered therapy?

YoureAnIgnoramous

Have you ever considered saying something substantial and staying on topic instead of resorting to petty hyperbolic nonsense? For example, why does our current President surround himself with White Nationalists, criminals and sexual predictors, many of which EMBRACE the support of known RACIST and EXTREMIST groups? That's OK with you? And you're OK with state sanctioned child abuse, inhumane conditions at Trumps refugee detention centers, right? I mean, you want to talk about mental illness, that's pretty f*cking sick in and of itself just ask anyone who isn't apart of the Conservative Cult and they'll agree... Perhaps those who refuse to acknowledge Trumps obvious criminal behavior, as described in the Mueller Report and as known since 1981, have been through some kind of Russian approved propagandistic brain wash as seen on Fox and Friends. That's why Conservatives brigade stories about minorities and ignore Trumps own Criminality. Conservatives operate on projection and disingenuous arguments to mask their own insecurities.

Stating facts is racist? Who kills more AA males? Which demographic? Go on, tell us. Or is such a basic truth still racist? The more you lemmings ignore the obvious, the longer the violence continues. This is thanks to people like you. Be proud.

You mad?

You nailed it, and they're coming to get you (in writing). They believe they're justified in their bigotry. They have the "facts" to prove it. Not interested in all the facts, though- just in blaming people for their insecurities.

Daddy Dummy why do Black people consistently run faster than white people and people of anal saxon descent?

If you read the story above, you'd know that they are looking for the suspect and the vehicle. So is it just possible that they don't have any more than a description of the person, and a police sketch artist to put it into graphical format at this point? Consider the facts as we (think) we know them.

I am sure that you are genuinely convinced of that.

Daddy, with the name Danzail there’s an excellent chance that the victim is black so I would say you are correct in your assumption.
