“We have two people confirmed shot in random acts,” Surprise Police Sgt. Greg Welch told CNN. He said there were several filming locations but could not provide an exact number.
Banner Health officials said three of their hospitals had received nine patients. Two patients were at Banner Boswell, three patients were at Banner Thunderbird, and four patients were at Banner Del Webb.
It is not known whether the patients had gunshot wounds or other injuries.
Banner Health officials, citing privacy laws, said they could not provide any additional patient information.
A suspect was apprehended during a traffic stop in Surprise, Welch said. He says one of two gunshot victims in his community is hospitalized in critical condition.
Aerial video from CNN’s affiliate KPHO / KTVK showed a white SUV with open doors that the news station described as the suspect’s vehicle.
Peoria Community Police also said they responded to “multiple shootings” but did not have further details.
Peoria is approximately 9 miles east of Surprise. Both are in the West Valley area of the Phoenix metro area, with Surprise about 45 minutes from downtown Phoenix.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
