CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) - Police in Chandler say they are investigating a homicide.

They received multiple 911 calls of shots fired at a residence with number people fleeing from the home around 3 a.m. Sunday.

When officers arrived on scene, they say a 26-year-old man was found lying in the backyard with multiple gunshot wounds.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and police haven't released his name yet.
