TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Investigators with the Tucson Police Department are asking for the community’s help in identifying the suspect(s) involved in a deadly shooting on the city’s south side that killed 28-year-old Jose Roberto Martinez Rascon.

Around 6:30 p.m. Dec. 20, 2021, officers were called to the south side for a shooting at the intersection of East Mossman Road and South Jeanette Boulevard.

Officers say Rascon and another man were found with gunshot wounds. Rascon died at a local hospital while the other man survived.
