Jul. 27, 2017
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A suspect has been arrested in connection with a fatal shooting on Tucson's southeast side.
Tucson police say 21-year-old Jordan Ewer was taken into custody Wednesday night and booked into jail on suspicion of second-degree murder.
It was unclear Thursday if Ewer has a lawyer yet.
Police say the shooting occurred about 5:30 a.m. Wednesday after an altercation broke out in the street.
When officers arrived on the scene, they found 40-year-old Gabriel Escalante in the roadway with obvious signs of gunshot trauma and he was later pronounced dead.
Police say the suspects fled the scene in a vehicle after the shooting and it appears they knew the victim.
They say a second suspect has been interviewed but not charged yet and detectives still are searching for the third suspect.
