PHOENIX (AP) — Police have identified a man killed in a shooting that broke out at a downtown Phoenix hotel. Phoenix police say 21-year-old Jaziah Shakor Causey was the sole fatality in the Sunday shooting that wounded seven others.

According to investigators, an altercation broke out shortly before 12:30 a.m. among a group of people attending an event at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix hotel.
