1 Dead, 5 Hurt In Mesa, Ariz.; Police Seek Active Shooter

Updated at 3:18 p.m. ET

Police in Mesa, Ariz., say they are looking for an active shooter after one person was shot dead and five others wounded at several locations in the city.

Detective Esteban Flores, a police spokesman, said one of those shot was in critical condition. He said police are looking for a bald white male in his 40s. He is wearing a gray shirt, black pants or shorts and has a tattoo on his neck, Flores said.

The violence began at a motel; shots were also fired at a restaurant and nearby apartment complexes, and included a home invasion and carjacking, The Associated Press reported.

Member station KJZZ reported that police were looking for an active shooter near the East Valley Institute of Technology campus.
