Parking Lots: Functional, Or Deadly?

Posted By on Wed, May 9, 2012 at 9:00 AM

Tuesday was not a good day to find yourself in a parking lot.

Two men were shot to death in separate, unrelated incidents in a pair of parking lots in the city limits, according to Tucson police.

The first shooting happened just before 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the Arcadia Terrace Apartments, 4860 E. Pima, when the deceased an another man got into a fight. Gunshots were heard, and when police arrived they found the victim slumped behind the wheel of a truck he'd been trying to drive away in but instead had crashed into a parked vehicle. The man died at a local hospital, and no information is available on the alleged shooter.

Then, about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, an otherwise ordinary night in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart at 1650 W. Valencia turned deadly when two groups of people got into a shouting match. This inevitably led to one man from each group getting into a fight, which then escalated when a gun was drawn and a 25-year-old man was shot to death. Police say the alleged shooter ran off but surrendered after being confronted by a security guard from a nearby apartment complex.
