Shoplifting Leads to Shooting

Two people are in custody and a third is wanted following a shoplifting and shooting at a shopping center on Tucson, Arizona’s southwest side Tuesday afternoon. The Tucson Police Department (TPD) said the incident began around 2 p.m. at the Tucson Spectrum Shopping Center at Irvington and Interstate 19. The TPD said two men entered the Foot Locker and tried to steal merchandise.

Foot Locker employees then confronted the men and one employee suffered minor injuries when a fight broke out. Once outside, one of the suspects fired a gun but no one was hit. The TPD said the suspects then fled to a car in the parking lot. There was also another person in the vehicle. Two of the suspects were detained while a third got away. The TPD said the suspect has been described as a Hispanic male in his 20s. Authorities initially said the suspects were also wanted in connection with a carjacking earlier in the day.   [Source: Tucson News Now]
