One man killed, another injured in south side shooting

TUCSON - One man is dead, and another man is in critical condition in what Tucson Police believe may have been a gang-related shooting on the south side Thursday night.

Shortly after 9 p.m., police responded to a shooting on the 1100 block of E 32nd St., where they found a 22-year-old man lying in the road with gunshot wounds.

According to Sgt. Maria Hawke, the man died at the scene.

Police also learned a 24-year-old man was taken to a nearby hospital with life threatening injuries. Investigators believe he was involved in the same shooting incident.

Police have not released either of the victims' names. They have reason to believe at least one of the men may have had gang affiliations, said Hawke.

According to Hawke, two groups of people were involved in an altercation when numerous shots were fired, hitting at least one person. Hawke did not say if police had any suspects at this time.

The Tucson Police Department Gang Investigations Unit is now investigating the shooting. Anyone with information should call 911 or 88-Crime.
