PHOENIX -

A fight between people at two different house parties turned deadly after someone pulled out a gun, killing one man and injuring three other people.

Phoenix police is asking for help identifying the shooter.  

Surveillance video shows a truck running over the fence at Alexia Barraza's home near 54th Avenue and Cypress around 2 a.m. on Saturday.

Barraza woke up to the car's blaring horn.

"I came outside, we saw the truck hit the fence. As soon as we got here, police were already here," said Barraza.

Police say the driver, 25-year old Marcus Hernandez, was shot.

Video shows him getting out of his truck.

Sandra Sosa, who lives nearby, also woke up to the commotion.

"He was screaming for help. He was saying 'Attention, attention'," said Sosa.

The house across the street caught it all on their surveillance cameras.

In part of the video, you see the injured man get out of his car, stumble and fall on to the fence before police arrive.

Investigators arrived in minutes.

Detectives say the man was shot about a block away near 54th Avenue and Palm.

Police say people from two house parties got into a fight when someone pulled out a gun, shooting the man and three other people.

Police believe the man was driving to get help when he ran over Barraza's fence.

Investigators say he later died from his gunshot wound.

"Wow, well, I don't know. That's shocking--that's pretty shocking," said Barraza.

There were three other gunshot victims: a 33-year-old man remains in critical condition and two other men, ages 29 and 17, are in stable condition.

Neighbors say there are parties in that area almost every weekend.

They say they often hear gunshots in the neighborhood.

"Now we're just thinking about moving. Now we want to move after this. It's not safe, especially for the baby," said Barraza.

Police say they have no suspect description.

Anyone with information is urged to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
