TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The Tucson Police Department arrested a man they said is connected to a deadly shooting at a home near Prince Road on Saturday, Dec. 2.

Department spokesman Sergeant Pete Dugan said a woman called the police at 4:30 am on Saturday and told them someone shot rounds into her house. The woman, who lives at the home with her brother, was able to escape the home safely, police said.

Officers responded to the home, located in the 1500 block of East Prince Road, and discovered a man inside with obvious signs of gunshot trauma. He was pronounced dead on the scene, police said. He's been identified as 31-year-old Jose Hurtado. Hurtado is the brother of the woman who lives at the home.

Along with the shooting police said the woman's vehicle was stolen, but later located close to the home.

Harmon is being held in the Pima County Jail on first degree murder, attempted murder, domestic violence and weapon misconduct charges. His bond was set at $1 million.
