MCSO says one suspect is dead and another has been taken into custody, both wanted for shooting at Phoenix firefighters during a burglary attempt at a station in Laveen Thursday night. During a press conference on Monday afternoon, Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone said both men were targeted during separate raids on Friday. An hour after a law enforcement briefing, 18-year-old Matthew Marquez was taken into custody at his home near 24th Street and Baseline Road without incident. Hours later, authorities say the second suspect, 20-year-old Elijah Boatley, was shot during an incident with deputies that are part of the FBI's Violent Gang Task Force near 48th Street and Broadway Road.
