Maricopa Police Department has identified the man who was shot to death in his garage Friday as Michael Agerter, 31.

Officers responded the home in the 43000 block of West Sagebrush Trail at around 2:28 p.m. after receiving calls of shots being fired. The callers also described a possible female leaving the area in a white minivan, possibly driving. She is described as approximately 5-foot-5, wearing blue jeans and a dark-color hoodie.

The minivan left the area at a high rate of speed after the shooting.

Agerter was found dead from gunshot wounds. The weapon is described only as a handgun at this point.

“We believe this was not a random act of violence,” MPD spokesman Ricardo Alvarado said.

He said detectives are looking at surveillance footage from the home.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call MPD at 520-568-3673 or the crime tip line at 520-316-6900.
