On Thursday, four people were killed in a triple murder-suicide at an apartment complex in midtown Tucson.
Officers were called to the Lind Commons Apartments, located at 3493 East Lind Road, around 11 a.m., according to the Tucson Police Department.
The shooting occurred when Pima County Constable Deborah Martinez-Garibay and an apartment manager provided an eviction notice, according to multiple sources.
According to sources, the evicted resident killed the apartment manager, Martinez-Garibay, and a neighbor before turning the firearm on himself. While the police were unable to verify the details, they stated that the scene is secure and that no perpetrators are in custody.
Only Martinez-Garibay had been identified as of 8 p.m. Thursday.
Martinez-Garibay was a well-liked United States Army veteran who was involved in the Tucson community, according to authorities. She enlisted after September 11, 2001, and served for nearly two decades before being injured in Afghanistan.
Martinez-Garibay was recognized for her efforts in 2019 and received a vehicle from the Recycled Ride program.
