PHOENIX, Ariz. -- At least six people are injured, three of them shot, after a shooting in Phoenix Wednesday morning. One victim was reported to be in extremely critical condition.
The shooting was reported at around 10:30 a.m. in a building on 16th Street near Glendale Avenue. The shooter is still at large.
The Associated Press said the gunman got into a dispute with someone at the office building.
An employee of a law office in the area said four people were seen removed from the scene on stretchers. Scores of onlookers took to balconies of nearby buildings to watch the scene unfold.
The Chevron gas station at the northwest corner of the intersection has been cordoned off, and traffic is reported to be heavily congested.
The shooting was mentioned during congressional hearings about gun violence. Mark Kelly, the former shuttle astronaut and husband of former Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, told the Senate panel that there had been "what seems to be a shooting with multiple victims with multiple shots fired."
More details will become available as this story develops.
