A physique discovered miles away from an early morning shootout throughout a house invasion could be one of many suspects, officers say.
Deputies have been referred to as about four:20 a.m. to a house within the 2200 block of West Oregon Road, close to South Mission and West Drexel roads, after studies of gunfire, stated Deputy Cody Gress, a spokesman for the Pima County Sheriff’s Division.
Residents advised deputies they exchanged gunfire with two to 3 individuals who busted into the house, probably claiming to be police.
The suspects fled the scene in a white 4-door car, headed in an unknown course.
At 5:30 a.m., whereas deputies have been conducting interviews, a “man down” name got here in relating to a physique that was present in a cul-de-sac a couple of miles away, within the 3100 block of West Calle Cisne, Gress stated.
The person, who had at the very least one gunshot wound, was pronounced deceased on the scene.
Though they can not affirm the 2 crimes are associated, the division is appearing as if they’re, Gress stated.
“This can be a very lively investigation with a potential murder,” Gress stated.
It is unclear how many individuals have been within the house on the time of the theft
