Police seek shooter at South Side gas station

Police are searching for a man who shot another man at a Diamond Shamrock gas station Thursday afternoon.

The victim, who was not identified by police, was taken to a hospital by Tucson Fire Department medics with “non-life-threatening injuries,” said Officer Linda Galindo, a Tucson police spokeswoman.

She did not have a description of either man.

She said the suspect fled the scene at Valencia Road and Campbell Avenue in a white Ford Mustang.

The confrontation began as a “verbal altercation that escalated into a shooting,” Galindo said.

No one else was hurt, she said.

Police got a 911 call from the gas station at 4:42 p.m. Galindo said. The victim was taken from the scene at about 5:25 p.m.

A Raytheon worker told the Citizen she was at the Diamond Shamrock getting gas when she saw a gunman fire multiple shots and flee.

The woman, whom the Citizen is not naming because she was a witness to the shooting, said the confrontation seemed to be between the two men.

Police were investigating Thursday evening and Galindo said no more details were available.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
