PHOENIX — Police have identified a 50-year-old man as the third of three people killed earlier this week in a shooting in a Phoenix neighborhood.

Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Alan Pfohl said Friday the victim was Manuel Francisco Rodriguez Jimenez.

The other men killed in the Wednesday afternoon shooting were earlier identified as 21-year-old Francisco Javier Galindo and 26-year-old Vidal Hernandez-Gutierrez.

Pfohl did not mention a motive in the latest statement about the shooting that involved a Phoenix man gunning the three men down at a neighbor’s home before he was killed in a shootout with police.

Police earlier reported that 39-year-old Edward Hallinan had been firing a rifle from his truck and was shot in a confrontation with arriving officers. He died from his injuries at a hospital.
