Tucson Police identify homicide victim
TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Tucson Police are investigating a shooting that has left one person dead and another person injured.
Sgt. Matt Ronstadt with Tucson Police tells KGUN9 that officers responded to an apartment complex in the 700 block of East 1st Street for a shots fired call around 11:45 a.m. Tuesday.
Officers arrived to find a male victim, in his 20's, outside the residence with non-life-threatening injuries, and another victim, 23-year old Carlos Guillermo, was inside deceased with obvious trauma.
Police are looking for two African-American males, both approximately six feet tall, wearing all dark or black clothing. One of them is described as having a light complexion.
The suspect vehicle is described as a white passenger car.
With such a vague description of the suspects, KGUN9 asked police how confident they are that they'll find the suspects. Sgt. Ronstadt explained that it is an initial description and that they usually get a better description after speaking with more witnesses and collecting more evidence.
Sgt. Ronstadt said detectives may also use social media sites to find the suspects.
"We've had a number of people be identified either through information that we have put out and we got feedback from the public or information that our detectives have been able to locate on the internet," he said.
There have been 43 murders in Tucson in 2011, the same amount as this time last year.
