Police seek beer thief who fired shot at security officers

Police are looking for a man who opened fire when employees at a South Side convenience store tried to stop him from stealing beer.

Sgt. Fabian Pacheco, a Tucson police spokesman, said the incident occurred at 10:46 p.m. Wednesday at the Circle K in the 5600 block of South Campbell Avenue.

A man wearing a dark jacket, striped polo shirt, jeans and athletic shoes took a 30-pack of beer before leaving without paying.

Store security officers tried to stop the man and a scuffle started, Pacheco said.

The man pulled out a handgun and fired a shot at the security officers, but nobody was wounded, he said.

The man escaped and authorities ask that anyone with information dial 911 or 88-CRIME, the county attorney’s anonymous tipster line.

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.
