PHOENIX (CBS5) -

One person has died after being shot in the head over a dispute about a $15 debt, Phoenix police said. 

The victim is identified as 25-year-old Anthony DeMartini.

Phoenix police are searching for the suspected gunman, Jarvis Crush, who is also accused of shooting a woman who was with DeMartini on Monday night. He is described as armed and dangerous.

Crush is wanted for first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.

Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Steve Martos said officers were called to 2500 West Ocotillo Rd. about 7:30 p.m. and found the victims with gunshot wounds.

The man was rushed to the hospital in extremely critical condition. Police announced on Wednesday that he had died.

The 34-year-old woman was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Martos said detectives believe the victims knew the suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO for Spanish.
