Man fatally shot in Tucson; 2nd man hospitalized

Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Tucson police are investigating possible gang involvement in a shooting incident that left one young man dead and may have involved another young man who is hospitalized in critical condition.

Police say officers responding to a 911 call Thursday night found a mortally wounded man lying on a street where other people were standing around. The 22-year-old man died at the scene.

Police then learned that a 24-year-old man had been hospitalized for treatment of unspecified injuries described as life-threatening.

Sgt. Maria Hawke says circumstances lead police to believe at least 1 of the individuals had gang affiliations and that the hospitalized man may have been present when the other man was fatally shot.
