Man, 39, shot, killed near South Side home

Citizen Staff Writer


Tucson police found 39-year-old Julio Alonso Carreon slain in a
South Side driveway early Friday morning, spokesman Sgt. Fabian Pacheco
said. Homicide detectives are investigating.

Tucson Police Department was responding to reports of gunshots when
they found Carreon in the 1400 block of East Ganley Terrace Drive, near
South Park Avenue and East Bilby Road, Pacheco said.

Carreon was found lying the the dirt driveway of a home minutes after police received the reports, about 2:20 a.m., he said.

Pacheco said Carreon appeared to have sustained gunshot wounds, and the home he was lying near was not his own.

A man, a woman and a child were inside the home but unharmed,
Pacheco said. Police are trying to establish the relationship between
Carreon and the home’s occupants.

The shooting does not appear to be random nor gang-related, he said,
though no motive had been established as of 7:30 a.m. Friday morning.

At that time, police were in the process of getting a search warrant
for the home and canvassing the neighborhood for witnesses.

Two vehicles were reported leaving the home after shots were fired, Pacheco said, though descriptions were conflicting.

Police had not identified a suspect as of 7:30 a.m.

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.
