For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. ~Matthew 10:35

MCSO: 2 dead, 2 wounded in mountain gun battle

Posted: 2017-05-06

GILA BEND, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

Two people were shot and killed and two others wounded in a mountain gun battle Monday between two groups of people, likely drug smugglers, a Maricopa County Sheriff's Office spokesman said.

The shootout happened about six miles east of Gila Bend in an area that is considered a high-traffic corridor for human and drug smuggling.

Two groups of people ran across each other, MCSO spokesman Joaquin Enriquez said. The group that called police after the gunfire ended had six people traveling together, Enriquez said. Of the six, two were killed, two were wounded and two others vanished.

The second group of people disappeared into the mountains, Enriquez said.

SWAT officers and police dogs from MCSO and Border Patrol agents are canvassing a huge area, which includes land where the U.S. Air Force has a live fire practice range, Enriquez said.

Sheriff's deputies found a large quantity of marijuana but they're not sure if it's directly related to the shootings, he added.
