TUCSON, Ariz.-- Tucson Police say a 15 year-old was killed and another person was injured in a shooting off Liberty Avenue and Pennsylvania Drive early Monday morning.

A short time later, TPD learned that a 15 year-old victim was at Banner UMC with gunshot wounds. The victim then passed away from his injuries. TPD identified him Wednesday as 15-year-old Brisyn Isaiah Gilmore.

Another victim, a juvenile female also suffered gunshot wounds during the shooting. Police located her at the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

After further investigation, TPD has learned that the boy and girl arrived at a party together as a group. An argument ensued between members their group and another group already at the party.

The group already at the party then shot their handguns into the air.

"The victim group fled the scene in an SUV-type vehicle and the suspect fired at the vehicle, striking Gilmore and the female victim. The vehicle stopped a short time later and the female victim exited the vehicle and called a family member for a ride to the hospital. Gilmore and a friend were dropped off at Banner South and the remaining occupants fled before police arrived at the scene," TPD said.
