Police: Suspect arrested in fatal shooting in south Phoenix

July 31, 2019

PHOENIX (AP) — Authorities say a suspect has been arrested in connection with a fatal shooting earlier this month in south Phoenix.

They say 20-year-old Richard Lee Chambers is being held on suspicion of second-degree murder.

Phoenix police say Chambers allegedly shot 21-year-old Adrian Reyes Valdez Avila at an apartment complex on July 9.

They say Avila was found with multiple gunshot wounds and was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

It was unclear Tuesday if Chambers has a lawyer yet.
