A man who was struck by lightning last weekend at an east-side golf course died Tuesday, police said.

Francisco Juarez died at University Medical Center after he was hit by lightning Saturday while golfing at Fred Enke Golf Course, 8251 E. Irvington Road, said Sgt. Diana Lopez, a Tucson Police Department spokeswoman.

Another golfer who was about 50 feet away from the man was treated and released for minor injuries after he was shocked during the lightning strike, said Tucson Fire Department spokeswoman Capt. Trish Tracy at the time of the incident.

The man, who was in his 40s, was at the driving range when he was struck, Tracy said.
