Mesa Police Investigate Homicide After Altercation At Night Club

November 16, 2008

This morning at approximately 2:30 a.m., a patrol officer in the area of Country Club and Main Street heard several gun shots coming from the area of Main Street and Robson. Officers immediately drove to the area and found large crowds of people and vehicles leaving Club Cabo which is located at 30 S. Robson. Officers were not able to locate anything initially and no one attempted to stop or contact officers. Officers then heard additional gunshots in the area of Sirrine and 1st Avenue and proceeded to that location to investigate.

When they arrived at Sirrine and 1st Avenue, officers located a 1999 Chevy truck stopped in the roadway. The truck had been struck multiple times by bullets and there were numerous shell casings in the roadway. There were five occupants inside the truck during this incident. The driver was shot and is listed in extremely critical condition. The front passenger received fatal gunshot wounds and was pronounced deceased at the scene. The other three occupants were not struck by gunfire and are currently cooperating with detectives in this case.

Officers were able to locate the first shooting scene near the parking lot of the Subway at Main and Robson, where numerous shell casings were found. There was a witness who did not see the shooting, but described two vehicles leaving the Subway right after the first shots. These may not be involved, but were described as:

  • Vehicle 1: Green Honda Civic (with no hood)
  • Vehicle 2: Beige, white or gold Nissan Altima


There is no information on possible suspect or suspects at this time. The names of the victims in this case are not available pending notification of family. Anyone with information about this shooting is encouraged to contact Mesa Police at 480-644-2211.
