Arrest warrant issued for suspect in S. Side homicide

Citizen Staff Writer



A first-degree murder arrest warrant has been issued for 22-year-old Anibal Cordova in connection with the shooting death of Alexis Nunez, 18.

Nunez died at an area hospital after being shot near a bus stop on South 12th Avenue near Drexel Road Wednesday afternoon in what authorities say was a gang-related incident.

Police say Nunez saw Cordova sitting at a bus stop and began arguing with him.

Cordova allegedly brandished a handgun and shot Nunez at least once before fleeing the scene on foot.

Investigators are seeking Cordova and urged anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts to call 911 or 88-CRIME.

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
