SAHUARITA, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Sahuarita Police have released new details in the shooting death of 34-year-old Jing Hu.

They say Hu was the ex-girlfriend of the current resident at a home on E. Thomas Jefferson Way. Hu and the resident reportedly ended their relationship a few months ago to include access to the home.

Police say the resident did not expect Hu to come over that evening, nor had they spoken to each other for some time. Hu entered the residence through a window in the side back yard.

Police say the resident in the home heard a commotion in a room and grabbed a firearm. The resident says he entered the room, which was dark at the time and saw a shadowy figure of a person.

He says he perceived a threat and fired at least three times, striking Hu. The resident turned on the light and recognized her and called 9-1-1.

Police say the resident has been cooperative with the investigation and provided a statement to SPD detectives.

The investigation is continuing, and investigators have not made any final conclusions. At the conclusion of the investigation, it will be presented to the Pima County Attorney’s Office for review.


Police are investigating a shooting that left a Tucson woman dead in Sahuarita late Sunday, June 20.

The Sahuarita Police Department said Jing Hu, 34, was found shot at a home in the 200 block of E. Thomas Jefferson Way. Hu died at the scene.

The SPD said all witnesses have been interviewed, no arrests have been made and there are no outstanding suspects.
