An altercation outside a nightclub in suburban Phoenix erupted in shooting, leaving 13 people wounded and two in serious condition. Police are looking for two young men as possible suspects. Tempe Sgt. Steve Carbajal said they fled after the shooting, which occurred shortly before midnight in the parking lot of The Clubhouse Music Venue. At least two were hospitalized in serious condition, while the others were treated for wounds that appeared less severe.

He said some of the injured drove themselves to the various hospitals so police aren't sure if there were other victims besides the 13. Carbajal described the shooting as the result of "some sort of altercation" at the club, where a rap concert was going on. Police didn't have immediate details on the disturbance.
