PHOENIX &emdash; Phoenix police said a 29-year-old woman accused of fatally shooting one man and wounding another outside a central Phoenix bar possibly had an altercation with somebody else at a nearby pub shortly before the killing.

Jessica Wood is being held on charges of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder in the Friday night shooting.

According to police, she approached two men and began shooting. One of the men died and the other was wounded.

A police probable-cause statement said a woman with a description similar to Wood was involved in a confrontation with another patron at a nearby bar before the shooting.

Officer James Holmes said the shooting victims weren't involved in the prior incident.
