Tucson, Arizona (KGUN) — Called “terrifying,” Tucson police chief Chris Magnus left multiple injuries on Sunday night, including an ambulance crew, two dead, and a few children.
The incident occurred in three locations, involving Tucson firefighters, Tucson police officers, ambulance crew, and neighbors near the original fire scene.
According to Magnus, it began around 3:45 pm when TFD received a home fire call at 2100 blocks in East Irene Vista. At the same time, the AMR ambulance was at Quincy Douglas Park, a few miles north.
Shortly after the paramedic arrived at the scene, a man approached a silver SUV and fired several bullets at the driver’s side of the ambulance, hitting the driver’s head and the passenger’s arm and chest. One of the EMTs was able to seek emergency assistance and explained the suspect’s vehicle. According to Magnus, the 20-year-old EMT who was hit in the head is currently in crisis, and another 21-year-old woman is stable.
Returning to the fire at Irene Vista’s house, several TFD trucks arrived, with several neighbors trying to help. Later, the same silver SUV arrived on fire and began shooting firefighters and neighbors on the scene. The fire brigade captain was beaten in the arm and was in good condition, but a neighbor (a 44-year-old man) was shot in the head and killed. Another neighbor’s head was grazed by a bullet, but in good condition. Another person died in a house fire, but investigators were unable to determine the age or gender of the victim.
According to Magnus, “two or three” children associated with the house where the fire broke out went missing, and police kept in touch with friends, family and neighbors who might have taken them. I am.
Immediately after the bullet rang in the house fire, police officers answered an emergency call from TFD and headed to the scene when they encountered the suspect’s SUV near the intersection of Campbell Avenue and Irene Vista. There, the suspect thrust his car into a police officer, and the two engaged in a shootout. The 35-year-old suspect has been beaten and is said to be in crisis.
Magnus says the police officer who fired was an eight-year veteran at the Tucson police station.
