Tucson Police have identified the suspect and victim in a shooting on July 4 near 36th Street and South Kramer Avenue, according to Sgt. Pete Dugan.


The suspect has been identified as 29-year-old Glenn Kyser and the victim was 28-year-old Thomas Barnes.

Responding officers found Barnes lying in front of a home with gunshot wounds in the 2000 block 36th Street and immediately began giving him CPR. 

He was transported to the hospital where he died. 

Police say there was a party at the home and a fight took place. At one point during the argument Barnes pulled out a stun gun and shocked Kyser. 

Then Kyser pulled out a handgun and shot Barnes.

Kyser has been booked into the Pima County Jail on one count of 2nd degree murder. 

Detectives interviewed multiple witnesses but are asking anyone with information to call 88-CRIME.
