One man has been arrested in reference to the Monday night shooting across the street from the University of Arizona campus, according to Tucson Police Department.

Sgt. Kimberly Bay said 30-year-old Marcus G. Webster was arrested in Coolidge, Arizona on Wednesday with the help of Coolidge Police Department and U.S. Marshals.

Police are still looking for two black men between the ages of 20 and 30 who were driving a 2015 Nissan Altima at the time of the shooting on Monday. The car was located on Tuesday afternoon, but the suspects are still outstanding at this time.

A woman was shot in the incident near the 1000 block of North Campbell. Bay said the crime appears to have been drug related, and the victim and suspects all knew each other.

The woman was taken to a local hospital around 10 p.m. on Monday night. Police did not release the woman's identity or condition, but say she is expected to survive.

No suspects are in custody at this time.
