A man turned himself into Tucson police in connection to a fatal shooting in a Circle K parking lot on Friday, the department said.
Shortly after 4:30 p.m., officers responding to the store at 1555 W. Valencia Road found a man with gunshot wounds and attempted to aid him.
Jaime Tadeo-Avila, 50, was declared dead following paramedics arrival at the scene, police said.
Detectives discovered that another man was parked when Tadeo-Avila was driving through the parking lot.
Due to heavy traffic, police said, there was nearly a collision involving their vehicles.
The man then parked next to Tadeo-Avila’s vehicle, firing several times striking him and causing minor injuries to his son, police said.
Lazaro Enrique Villa, 26, called 911 to turn himself in a short time later.
Villa faces charges of first-degree murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
