Three people were shot Wednesday night in a popular shopping complex near Phoenix and the shooter was in custody, the Arizona Republic reports. Police responded to the Westgate Entertainment District, said Glendale police spokeswoman Tiffany Ngalula. She said one victim was in critical condition. The shooter was found in the Westgate area. Ngalula said police “challenged” him and were able to safely take him into custody. A video circulated on social media appearing to the shooter with a semi-automatic rifle.
State Sen. Martin Quezada said, “I just witnessed an armed terrorist with an AR-15 shoot up Westgate.” YAM Properties, a commercial real-estate company owned by GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons, bought the Westgate Entertainment District in 2018. Westgate opened in 2006 just ahead of the Arizona Cardinals’ first season playing in Glendale. The complex is next to State Farm Stadium, which has hosted two Super Bowls.
