TEMPE - Police are looking for multiple suspects who shot an employee at a medical marijuana dispensary in Tempe on Thursday night.
Tempe Police say a group ranging from three to six men entered the AzGoGreen Co-op near Southern Avenue and College Avenue around 7 p.m. and confronted an employee.
The suspects hit and then shot the employee and fled on foot.
Officials say the victim, described as a male in his 30s, has been hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.
Lt. Mike Horn says police are still investigating the suspects' motives and it does not appear they removed any property.
Horn says the business opened recently and is the subject of a police and Drug Enforcement Administration investigation.
Horn says police believe the business is operating outside of Arizona's voter-approved medical marijuana law.
