Investigators are looking into an overnight shooting in Vekol Valley that put one man in the hospital. Officers scouring the scene later found a body in the desert — a man who had been shot to death.
Vekol Valley, which is a notorious drug-trafficking corridor, is halfway between Casa Grande and Gila Bend, about 50 miles south of Phoenix. Gaffney said there are often vehicle pursuits in the area. It’s also the same area where former Pinal County Deputy Louie Puroll was shot in what he described as an ambush by marijuana smugglers armed with AK-47 rifles.
