TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Tucson police are looking for two people who stole a pickup truck, shot someone to death, then shot at police in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Officers responded to the area in the 300 block of E. Congress Street at around 2 a.m. for a report of a carjacking, according to TPD. Officers found a man with signs of gunshot trauma who was later pronounced dead. He was identified as 52-year-old Mark Edward Doe.

According to witnesses, the two suspects approached and attempted to rob multiple victims inside the multilevel parking garage. After several attempts, the two men stole a white Nissan pickup truck and collided with several vehicles as they headed towards the exit.
