Police on Sunday night were searching for a shooter who wounded four people in Phoenix, two of them critically, officials said. 

The shooting happened about 8 p.m. in a motel near 25th and Van Buren streets, police said.

About 10 minutes earlier, officers had begun receiving reports of a fight inside one of the rooms, according to Sgt. Armando Carbajal, a Phoenix police spokesman.

Police believe the fight stemmed from a “domestic dispute.”

Two people were critically hurt, while two others had serious but non-life-threatening injuries, Carbajal said. They were taken to an area hospital.

As of 8:45 p.m., a police helicopter was flying overhead with a searchlight. Officers had cordoned off the parking lots of the Paradise Motel and Airport Inn and closed 25th Street between Van Buren and Monroe streets.

Officials urged drivers to avoid the area.
