Citizen Staff Writer



A man who turned a gun on himself after apparently fatally shooting his girlfriend at a house party Sunday died Friday.

Roberto Gardea Ruiz, 30, died Friday morning from the gunshot wound to his head, sheriff’s spokeswoman Deputy Dawn Barkman said.

Pima County Sheriff’s Department deputies found Ruiz wounded and his girlfriend, 23-year-old Ashley Nicole Fimbrez, dead in an upstairs bedroom of the couple’s Northwest Side home early Sunday.

Deputies were responding to a call of unknown trouble at the home in the 1000 block of West Sea Star Drive and were talking to party guests when they heard the gunshots.

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
