TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Police have arrested a man in connection with a shooting that left one person dead in a parking garage in downtown Tucson over the weekend.
Luis Alberto Garcia, 21, was arrested in connection with the crimes at around 6 a.m. Tuesday morning. Police say a SWAT team arrested Garcia at a hotel near 1st Avenue and Wetmore Road without incident. He's facing charges of first-degree murder, aggravated assault with a firearm, aggravated assault on a peace officer with a deadly weapon, robbery, auto theft and vandalism.
Police say they're still working to identify a second suspect in the incident that led to the shooting death of 52-year-old Mark Edward Doe. It happened just after 2 a.m. Sunday morning at a garage on Congress Street. Two men had attempted to rob multiple people that night and Doe had tried to intervene before he was shot.
The suspects drove off in a stolen pickup truck. Officers later found the truck and tried to pull it over, but the driver fled from officers leading to a chase. Police say at least one of the suspects shot at police officers during the pursuit, though the officers did not return fire.
The Tucson Police Department is asking anyone with information about the crime to call 911, or anonymously report a tip to 88-CRIME.
