Cops seek shooter at S. Side gas station

Citizen Staff Writer




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 incident 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 incident, said the confrontation seemed to be between the two men.

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

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
