A Thursday morning e-mail from Lila Sorensen said shooting victim Francisco Calvillo and his brother were friends with her daughter.

“I used to pick them up and take them to my house to swim,” she wrote. “He and Adrian were nice boys. I never knew of anything bad that they did.”

Sorensen added that her daughter is devastated.

“This is the third young man she has been friends with whom have lost their lives to guns,” she said.

She said the first was Alfred Valenzuela Jr., who was accidentally shot at Lincoln Park in December 2006.

She did not mention the second death.

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.
