Cops are still seeking answers to questions posed by an alleged gunfight in Senita last month, according to city officials.
At about 9 p.m. July 6, Maricopa Police Department responded to the reported shooting on West Cowpath Drive, city spokesperson Monica Williams said the day after the episode.
An unidentified witness told officers people began shooting from inside a moving car. The witness, who also had a gun, admitted to returning fire and striking an empty vehicle parked on the street.
While police did not identify the witness, city resident Shawan Harris took to social media and claimed to be the person who fired back.
Harris posted a description of the vehicle whose passengers allegedly fired at him before he shot back. “I answer back, and I’m in the wrong?” Harris wrote. “Can we not protect our land and family?”
InMaricopa reached out to Harris, who did not respond to interview requests.
Maricopa police have yet to name a suspect.
“The case remains open and under investigation,” city spokesman Brandon LaVorgna said. “There is no new information at this time.”
