Man aids wounded neighbors, shoots attacker

"Man aids wounded neighbors, shoots gunman, police say"

PHOENIX, ARIZONA -- A man opened fire and wounded two people before a concerned neighbor of the victims grabbed a gun and shot him, authorities said.

All three were in serious condition Friday.

The unidentified neighbor "did what he thought was right in a very deadly encounter," said Detective Tony Morales, a Phoenix police spokesman. Two of the victims, Jorge Guzman, 24, and Cardenia Guzman, 26, were reported in serious condition at Good Samaritan Medical Center.

The family relation of the Guzmans, if any, was not immediately determined.

A man suspected of shooting both of them, Martin Talavera, 26, was reported in serious condition at Maricopa Medical Center, Morales said.

Investigators believe the shooting occurred after Talavera showed up about 1:35 a.m. at a home in the 3600 block of West Latham Street, south of McDowell Road, and got into some kind of argument with the Guzmans, Morales said.

The 24-year-old neighbor, hearing the commotion, grabbed a weapon and shot Talavera, Morales said.

No charges are expected against the neighbor because police believe he acted legally by using deadly force to protect the lives of other people, Morales said.

Police withheld the neighbor's name to protect the man from possible retribution.
