PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona authorities say five people have been arrested in connection with a deadly shooting at a Phoenix apartment complex over the weekend.

As officers responded to the scene Saturday just before midnight, police were notified that two people showed up at a nearby hospital emergency room with gunshot wounds.

Investigators say 20-year-old Mozafer Babiker, 21-year-old Marquis Momon and three teens went to the apartment complex to rob 18-year-old Telvin Goll. They forced the door open and gunfire was exchanged.

Goll was killed. Momon and one of the teens were injured.

Babiker and Momon are each facing one count of first-degree murder and other charges. Police say charges also are pending against the teens.

Police spokesman Sgt. Tommy Thompson says drugs are believed to have been involved.
