DEVELOPING: A man has been discovered dead near where a second man was found wounded at an Interstate 8 rest stop in Pinal County, Ariz.

Pinal County Sheriff's spokesman Tim Gaffney says the wounded man said he was with a large group of illegal immigrants when assailants attacked.

Gaffney say deputies, Arizona Department of Public Safety officers and U.S. Border Patrol agents are searching the desert for possible assailants, witnesses or other possible victims near Antelope Peak.

Gaffney says the wounded man told officers he about 15 fellow migrants had made camp in the desert late Wednesday when another group of men opened fire.

The wounded man fled into the desert and wound up at the I-8 stop west of Stanfield. He was taken to a Phoenix-area hospital Thursday morning.
