The Latest: Police say suspected gunman dies after shooting

PHOENIX (AP) — The Latest on a deadly shooting at a Phoenix motel (all times local):

4 p.m.

Police say a suspected gunman has died after a shooting at a Phoenix motel left two men dead and two other victims wounded.

Investigators say they still don't have a motive for Sunday night's attack.

Police say 28-year-old Daterryn McBride shot three men in the motel lobby — killing two of them — and then shot and wounded two people in a pickup truck in the parking lot.

They say McBride then carjacked a vehicle nearby, abandoned it when it broke down and stole another car and shot himself when police confronted him after he crashed the second vehicle.

McBride died at a hospital Monday afternoon.

Police say 44-year-old Brian Harris died after the lobby shooting and another motel employee — a 25-year-old man whose name hasn't been released — remains hospitalized in extremely critical condition.

They say the other man who died in the lobby shooting has been identified as 44-year-old Robert Sykes.
