Tucson Police Arrest Second Suspect in Murder Case | Arizona and Regional News

TUCSON, Arizona (AP) – A second teenage suspect was arrested in connection with a recent murder in Tucson, authorities said Thursday.

The 16-year-old boy was detained in the Pima County Jail on suspicion of murder and armed robbery, police said. A 17-year-old boy, who is also considered a suspect, is already in custody.

The Associated Press does not identify either of the teenagers because they are teenagers.

Police responded to a report of gunfire and an unresponsive person in a parking lot on the night of July 28th. The man showed obvious signs of gunshot trauma and was pronounced dead, police said.

The man was identified as 30-year-old Ron Everett Fitch, who agreed to make a sale through a third-party sales page but was robbed and shot trying to close the deal.

As the police announced, the two youths were arrested.
