TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - PCSD has identified the man involved in a deputy-involved shooting outside a popular bowling alley in Tucson Thursday, June 25.
The Pima County Sheriff’s Department said it happened around 1 p.m. outside Fiesta Lanes, located at the intersection of River and Oracle.
The PCSD said deputies were investigating a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot when they found out it had a license plate that was reported stolen.
Deputies tried to talk to 41-year-old John Lingo in the vehicle, but authorities say a fight broke out and the Lingo allegedly pulled a gun.
A deputy then fired and hit Lingo who was taken to the hospital.
Lingo is currently under arrest and has been charged with several felonies including Attempted Murder, Auto Theft and Weapons Misconduct.
The PCSD said no deputies were hurt and no suspects are outstanding.
Both deputies involved in the incident have been put on paid administrative leave, which is standard for any shooting.
