Police have now identified the victim in Friday night's shooting as 25-year-old Bernando Marin. The other man who was struck by gunfire is still in the hospital.

On Friday, TPD received calls around 4p.m. concerning gunfire in a BK Tacos parking lot near Wyoming Street and South 12th Avenue.

When TPD officers arrived on scene, they found a man with gunshot trauma wounds and applied first aid until Tucson Fire arrived. Shortly after TFD reached the victim, the man was pronounced dead on scene.

After interviewing witnesses, TPD was able to track down a vehicle that fled the parking lot shortly before police had arrived. 

When they pulled over the vehicle, they found another male with gunshot trauma wounds and he immediately transported him to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The other individuals are said to have fled in a different vehicle. TPD is still following up on leads to determine their identities and to find out more about what took place.

Per TPD, witnesses say that the two men who received the gunshot wounds were together in the parking lot and were approached by at least two other men. Shortly after, the two groups engaged in a verbal altercation that led to gunshots being fired. 

TPD said that they do not know at this time if gunfire was exchanged between groups.

Sergeant Dugan has confirmed that TPD has their gang, homicide and aggravated assault units investigating. 

Witnesses are asked to call 9-1-1 or 88CRIME with any information.
