PHOENIX (AP) - Police say as two bail bondsmen arrived at a Phoenix home this week to take a man into custody, they were swarmed by a crowd while the suspect yelled for someone to shoot them.

77-year-old David Brickert and 39-year-old Wesley Kampen from Sanctuary Bail Bonds died at the scene Monday night. Authorities say the men had taken into custody 25-year-old Anthony Brian Giunta after he didn't show up for a hearing on weapons and drug charges.

Authorities say 23-year-old Nicholas Malicki is held on suspicion of 2 counts of first-degree murder.

Phoenix police say in a probable cause statement that Malicki emerged from the crowd and fatally shot both bail bondsmen. Giunta escaped but was arrested a few hours later.

Malicki has denied the charges and claims he is being framed.
