A man died late Friday night after he was shot at a Circle K in central Tucson.

Tucson police and Tucson Fire Department paramedics responded to a report of a shooting at 2332 N. Oracle Road, at West Grant Road, at 10:45 p.m. Friday where they found Bernardo Ramirez-Ramirez, 24, with obvious signs of gunshot trauma.

Tucson Fire paramedics transported him with life-threatening injuries to Banner University Medical Center, where he died later that night, the Tucson Police Department said in a news release.

According to interviews, a male suspect was inside the Circle K when Ramirez-Ramirez and a woman walked into the store, the department said. The two men began to argue and continued arguing after the suspect bought something from the store. The men then started fighting and at some point the suspect pulled out a handgun.
