TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Officers with the Tucson Police Department are investigating a homicide that occurred last night in midtown Tucson.

On Feb. 16 just after 6:45 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 3900 block of E. Pima St. in reference to a report of a stabbing.

Upon arrival, officers located a total of three injured adult males. Two of them had obvious signs of sharp force trauma. The third was found with signs of blunt force trauma.

Officers immediately began rendering first aid until Tucson Fire arrived. Once on scene, TFD medics continued rendering aid, transporting the two with sharp force trauma to Banner University Medical Center with serious injuries.

Despite life-saving efforts, the third male was pronounced deceased at the scene. He has been identified as 50-year-old Eric Wilson.

Detectives learned though interviews that Wilson was involved in an altercation with two of his neighbors. And as the altercation escalated, he pulled out an edged weapon.

During the altercation, the two other males were able to subdue Mr. Wilson until officers arrived on scene.

The two men hospitalized continue to receive treatment for their serious, but non-life threatening injuries. The investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made at this time.

Investigators have processed and collected evidence at the scene, and are asking anyone with information to call 88-CRIME.
