The report suggests there was a fight that damaged vehicles and escalated to the point where a handgun was used. Lt. Dan McGrath, of Metro’s Homicide Section, said that a white man in his 20’s was hit with a bullet and transported to University Medical Center. The victim died while in treatment at the hospital.

Police have yet to identify the suspect but they are looking for a 1990’s model black Volkswagen Jetta with tinted windows, gold rims and Arizona license plates.
