An Avondale man was arrested in connection with the shooting death of his neighbor, police said.

Officers arrived at a home near Lower Buckeye Road and 127th Avenue in Avondale just before 5 p.m. Sunday, after receiving a report of shots fired, according to Sgt. Thomas Alt, an Avondale police spokesman.

They discovered the homeowner, Ramon Oseguera, dead in the garage with multiple gunshot wounds, Alt said.

Investigators determined he had been fighting with a neighbor, Ruben Alvarez, shortly before he was shot and identified Alvarez as a suspect, Alt said. 

Phoenix police helped find Alvarez near 19th and Southern avenues and arrested him.

As of Sunday evening, police did not believe there are any additional shooting suspects.
