At least three people were shot in a shooting at an office complex in Phoenix on Wednesday, police there say, and a manhunt for the shooter is underway.
The building was evacuated and the suspect fled the scene, Sgt. Tommy Thompson said. The shooting--which occurred in the building's lobby--does not appear to be random act, Thompson said, though he would not say if the suspect knew the victims. Witnesses say they heard as many as 10 gunshots fired.
Three victims were transferred to John C. Lincoln Hospital with gunshot wounds, he said. Their conditions were not immediately known, but according to Phoenix's NBC 12 affiliate, one was in "extremely critical condition."
At least three other people were transported to the hospital with minor injuries related to the shooting.
A SWAT team began canvassing a neighborhood in search of the suspected shooter described by Thompson as an "older" white male.
“At this point we don’t believe he is in the area,” Thompson said. “This doesn’t appear to be a random type of incident.”
The shooting occurred on the same day former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords--who was shot in the head during a mass shooting in Tuscon in 2011--opened a Senate hearing on gun violence with a plea to end gun violence.
"Speaking is difficult but I need to say something important," Giffords said at the top of the hearing. "Violence is a big problem. Too many children are dying. Too many children. We must do something. It will be hard, but the time is now. You must act. Be bold, be courageous, Americans are counting on you."
