TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - TPD have identified the man killed in a shooting on the south side of Tucson Friday, Nov. 23.
The deceased male has been identified as 25-year-old Bernardo Marin.
Just before 4p.m. on Nov. 4, officers from Operations Division South were dispatched to 5118 S. 12th Avenue for multiple reports of a shooting.
Sgt. Pete Dugan, spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, said the incident happened in the parking lot of Tacos and Hot Dogs BK, which is at the corner of 12th Avenue and Wyoming Street.
He said officers found Marin on the ground in BK’s parking lot and another in a vehicle nearby.
Marin died despite life-saving efforts by TPD officers and first responders from the Tucson Fire Department. The man in the vehicle, which was found near Irvington and 12th Avenue, was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.
Dugan said the TPD’s gang, homicide and aggravated assault units are investigating the incident, which happened around 4:30 p.m.
The two victims were in the BK parking lot when they were approached by at least two other men.
“There was some kind of verbal altercation and that’s when gun shots were fired,” Dugan said. “The other individuals fled the scene in a vehicle. Right now, we are following up on leads to try to determine who those individuals (suspects) are."
Detectives are currently following up with leads, but ask anyone with information to call 911 or 88-CRIME. He said callers can remain anonymous.
Additional details will be released when they become available.
