A man fatally shot in a Food City parking lot on the city's south side Saturday night has been identified as Tomas E. Tovar.
Tovar, 36, was shot shortly before 10 p.m. outside the supermarket at 2000 E. Irvington Road, near South Campbell Avenue, said Sgt. Pete Dugan, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.
Homicide detectives ask that anyone with information call 911 or 88-CRIME.
Police responded to a shots fired call and found Tovar with "obvious signs of gunshot trauma." Officers administered first aid until Tucson Fire Department paramedics arived, Dugan said.
Tovar was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Many people were in the parking lot when the shooting occurred, and detectives are searching for a grey or silver Dodge Magnum that was seen leaving the area shortly after the shooting, said Dugan.
