Tucson police officers were involved in a fatal shooting Saturday night on the south side.

The shooting happened shortly after 7 p.m. in the 100 block of West Irvington Road, near South Sixth Avenue.

The shooting happened in the parking lot of the El Pueblo Regional Center.

Sgt. Chris Widmer, a police spokesman, said a 911 caller reported a man and woman fighting in the parking lot of El Pueblo Regional Center. The caller said the man had a gun.

Two officers arrived within a couple of minutes of the call and there was a confrontation between the man and the officers, Widmer said.

The officers fired at the man, who was struck an unknown number of times.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. His name and age were not released as of late Saturday.

No officers were injured.

The woman fighting with the man was detained for questioning, Widmer said.
