A woman was killed and a man was injured after being shot inside a Glendale home Tuesday night. 

Police say an armed man showed up to a home near 59th Avenue and Glendale and knocked on the door a little after 9 p.m.

When a 36-year-old man answered, he saw the suspect was armed and immediately shut the door.

According to police, the gunman started firing shots through the window of the home, hitting both the man that had answered the door and 42-year-old Christina Marquez, who was also inside. The suspect immediately took off.

The man and Marquez were both rushed to the hospital, but Marquez later died from her injuries. 

The 36-year-old has non-life threatening injuries and is recovering.

The suspected gunman was arrested Wednesday afternoon. 22-year-old Angelo Medina was booked into jail for second degree murder, aggravated assault, and discharging a firearm into an occupied structure.

Glendale Police Sgt. Brent Coombs says it appears the shooting stemmed from a child custody dispute.
