Police are looking for a man who opened fire when employees at a South Side convenience store tried to stop him from stealing beer.

Sgt. Fabian Pacheco, a Tucson police spokesman, said the incident occurred at 10:46 p.m. Wednesday at the Circle K in the 5600 block of South Campbell Avenue.

A man wearing a dark jacket, striped polo shirt, jeans and athletic shoes took a 30-pack of beer before leaving without paying.

Store security officers tried to stop the man and a scuffle started, Pacheco said.

The man pulled out a handgun and fired a shot at the security officers, but nobody was wounded, he said.

The man escaped and authorities ask that anyone with information dial 911 or 88-CRIME, the county attorney’s anonymous tipster line.

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.
