PHOENIX -- Authorities say a man has been fatally shot in a west Phoenix parking lot.
Police say the shooting occurred Monday afternoon outside a Home Depot store near 99th Avenue and Camelback Road.
They say two men were in the parking lot working out details of an online transaction when they were approached by a stranger.
That man demanded information from the men and then reportedly pulled out a gun.
One of the other men drew his own weapon and shot the stranger, who police say was taken to a hospital and later died.
The names of the men involved haven't been released.
Police say the shooter is claiming self-defense, but detectives are still investigating the incident.
