Tucson police identified a 25-year-old man who was shot and killed at a north-side grocery store early Wednesday.

Ricky Lomax was shot just before 4 a.m. in the parking lot of the Northgate Shopping Center on the northeast corner of East Grant Road and North Alvernon Way.

Lomax was able to walk into a 24-hour Walmart Neighborhood Market before he collapsed and died, Sgt. Chris Widmer, spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, said.

Lomax, who was unarmed, had a confrontation with several men outside the store entrance and at least one of the men shot the victim multiple times, Widmer said.

Police are looking for a white four-door car that was seen leaving the parking lot after the shooting, heading north on Alvernon.

In addition to homicide detectives, members of the police's gang unit are investigating, Widmer said.
