A double shooting in Flagstaff left one man dead and another in critical condition early Friday morning, according to a recent Flagstaff Police Department (FPD) media release. FPD stated that at approximately 2:05 a.m., officers responded to an emergency call from the N. Humphreys Street parking lot near a Bashas’ grocery store. The call stated two individuals had been shot and upon officer arrival, FPD located the individuals at the south end of the parking lot near a pickup truck.
The individuals were determined to be 28-year-old Troy Dean Brundle from Mesa and 27-year-old Travis McCluskey from Gilbert. FPD detectives on the scene concluded that Brundle had shot McCluskey prior to shooting himself. Detectives also learned the two men were friends and knew each other in advance of the altercation.
Brundle was pronounced dead on the scene due to the self-inflicted gunshot wound and McCluskey was immediately transported to Flagstaff Medical Center.
FPD stated the investigation is ongoing and is pending further investigation, as well as Medical Examiner findings.
