Tucson police have identified a man shot and killed on the eastside as 22-year-old Edward A. McGuire. 

Police say just after 8:30 p.m. on Sunday officers responded to an apartment complex at 1901 North WIlmot Road for multiple reports of gunfire. 

As officers arrived they located McGuire in the parking lot with obvious signs of gunshot trauma. 

Police say McGuire was pronounced dead at the scene.  

Detectives responded and learned that McGuire was a passenger in a vehicle with two other friends. 

As the car pulled into the complex parking lot, there was an altercation between the occupants of McGuire's car and occupants of another car(s).
