YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) – The Yuma Police Department (YPD) said a deadly weekend shootout began with a heated argument at a Yuma bar.

Officials said they received a call just before 12:30 p.m. Saturday morning alerting them of an attack on the 1400 block on S. 4th Avenue. They say they arrived to find 36-year-old Tyrone Hall, who died from multiple gunshot wounds.

Shots also hit an unidentified 32-year-old woman. Paramedics took her to the hospital with serious injuries. She was later flown to a Phoenix hospital for more critical care. She is currently listed in stable condition. YPD officials were able to question her about the incident prior to her transfer.

YPD said the shooting took place in the outer, back area of ​​the bar. They say the hall was involved in an argument prior to the exchange of fire.

On Saturday evening, officers had two people in custody in connection with the shooting. YPD arrested a man for withholding information about the suspect. A second man, 32-year-old Jerome Hall, turned around a few hours later.

Hall, unrelated to the victim, is charged with first degree murder. He and the unidentified 35-year-old will be formally charged on Tuesday.

A GoFundMe set up for Tyrone Hall’s funeral expenses describes him as a father and a great man and says, “Tyrone will be truly missed by many, especially his girls.”
