Police seek beer thief who fired shot at security officersby Citizen Staff Report on May. 01, 2009, under Local, Special
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.
