Police were called to the family's home by a neighbor after a wounded 12-year-old girl fled from the scene and asked for help.
"I grabbed her. We pulled her into our front porch, sat her down because she was bleeding really good, started applying pressure, grabbed my phone, we both called 911 and then we heard a gunshot," the neighbor told ABC15.
On Monday, Mesa police confirmed with PEOPLE they believe Ruben Sanchez was the shooter.
