David Sanchez

David Sanchez was arrested hours after a fatal shooting near 87th and Manzanita drives.

After a Jan. 3 shooting left a 19-year-old dead, Peoria police officers arrested David Sanchez, a Peoria resident. 

Sanchez,  also 19, was booked into the Maricopa County Jail with a first-degree murder charge.

He is charged with killing Nathaniel D. Fowler.

The fatal shooting took place before 10 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 3, near 8000 N. 87th Drive.

The shooting location is near Peoria Crossings on Northern and 91st avenues and less than a mile from Raymond S. Kellis High School.

A 911 caller reported hearing an argument and gunshots.

Responding officers found a man down in the street with apparent gunshot wounds.

Fowler died at the scene, said Amanda Gaines of the Peoria Police Department.

“Officers were able to identify a house nearby that the suspect or suspects entered and were eventually able to detain multiple individuals,” Gaines said. “This incident appears to be isolated between these individuals who appear to be known to each other, and there are no outstanding suspects.”

She said detectives are investigating the fatal shooting and urge anyone with information to call 623-773-8311.

In his booking information, Sanchez is listed as being 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighing 135 pounds.
