Altercation elsewhere may have preceded shooting at Phoenix sports bar

According to police, Wood approached the two men and opened fired.

One man later died from a gunshot wound to his leg. Another man remained hospitalized Monday.

Police records indicated both victims were at a nearby bar prior to the shooting, where they got into an altercation with a woman matching Wood's description.
