Graduation party turns deadly

Domestic violence can rear its ugly head just about anywhere, including at a high school graduation party.

Such was the case at a home in Mesa when a 37-year-old guy allegedly got into a fight with his ex-wife at a party.

Instead of leaving, which is what many normal people do when they get mad, he went out to his vehicle and got a gun, according to an Associated Press report.

2 dead, 6 hurt in Mesa graduation party shooting

Mesa police say two people are dead and six others wounded after a shooting at a high school graduation party at a home.

Mesa Police Sgt. Ed Wessing said Sunday that a police officer and two boys ages 8 and 10 were among those injured.

The suspect, a 37-year-old man, is in custody after a four-hour standoff at a home east of Phoenix. Read story: www.kvoa.com/global/story.asp?s=10416443

Surely the graduate will remember the party forever, and not in a good way.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

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.
