Teen arrested after Sunday shooting on Tucson’s south side
TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - A 17-year-old boy is facing a murder charge after, authorities say, he allegedly shot and killed a man early Sunday, Nov. 21.
According to Tucson police, officers were called shortly before 6 a.m. to an apartment complex at 5505 South Mission Road in response to a shooting.
Inside, the TPD found a man suffering from gunshot wounds.
Despite treating him at the scene, 48-year-old Frankie Perez Sanchez was pronounced dead there.
Through interviews and evidence, investigators say, they determined Sanchez was visiting a friend’s apartment when he got into a fight with a man he knew outside. During the fight, another man got involved and several gunshots were heard.
Andrew Gonzalez, 17, was allegedly involved and now faces a second-degree murder charge. He was booked into the Pima County jail, where he remained Monday with bond set at $500,000.
The case is under investigation, and authorities are asking that anyone who has information call 88-CRIME. Callers can stay anonymous.
