Man arrested in fatal drive-by shooting

TUCSON, Ariz. - Tucson Police have arrested a suspect for a fatal shooting that happened April 6 on Tucson's east side at a home near Pantano and 22nd.

When officers arrived on the scene, they located two men bleeding heaving with obvious signs of gunshot trauma. Both were transported to a local area hospital.

Sgt. Pete Dugan with TPD says 51-year-old Jesus Castro died shortly after arriving at the hospital. Castro's son was the second victim transported. He is in stable condition but is still at the hospital.

A third man, Castro's other son, was also at the scene but had no injuries.

Police say Castro was sitting in his truck and talking to both of his sons, who were standing in the front yard.

While they were having a conversation a car pulled up next to Castro's truck, opened fire, and then sped away from the scene.

Investigators say it appears the victims were specifically targeted, not random. The Tucson Police Gang Unit is further investigating the incident, but say it does not appear to be gang-related.

47-year-old Anthony Fimbres was booked into the Pima County Jail for one count of first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and one count of discharging a firearm at a residential structure, and one count of prohibited possessor.
