A Tucson man called police just before 1 a.m. Wednesday to report he had just been involved in a northside shooting, a police official said.

The call came in at 12:48 a.m. about the shooting that occurred 400 block of East Navajo Road near the intersection of North Geronimo Avenue and East Fort Lowell Road, said Sgt. Maria Hawke, spokeswoman for the Tucson Police Department. The caller said he’d shot a man.

When officers arrived two minutes later, they found a man with gunshot wounds dead at the scene.

The man who made the 911 call remained at the scene and was cooperating with police, Hawke said.

No further information has been released.
