Tucson police identified the man killed in a shooting outside south-side BK Tacos and Hot Dogs shortly after 4 p.m. Friday, authorities say.

Bernardo Marin, 25, was found shot in the parking lot when officers arrived, said Sgt. Pete Dugan, a Tucson police spokesman. The popular restaurant is at 5118 S. 12th Ave.

Marin was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.
