PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix police say one man died and a second man was wounded when they were shot by a man who had followed them after they picked up their girlfriends from work.

Police say in a news release that the dead man realized his vehicle was being followed early Sunday and turned into a west Phoenix cul-de-sac in an effort to elude the assailant. That when they say 24-year-old Gabriel Munoz shot both men after they exited the vehicle.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson said 33-year-old Juan Damian Diaz died at the scene and the second man was taken to a hospital and expected to survive. Two women in their vehicle were not injured.


Thompson says Munoz and Diaz had each picked up their girlfriends at work and the women had a standing feud.

Munoz was booked into jail on murder, aggravated assault and other charges. It wasn’t clear if he had an attorney who could comment on the charges.
