TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) -Tucson Police are still working to find out who shot and killed a man at Freedom Park. 

It happened yesterday just before 1 p.m. when Tucson Police received multiple calls of shots fired at the midtown park. 
 
When officers arrived on scene near Swan and Golf Links Road, they found 30-year old Marcus Darton suffering from gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead on scene.
 
Witness say there were several cars at the park when the shooting occurred, but some reportedly left before police arrived.
 
Police were able to get information about the suspects and the suspect vehicles based on eyewitness accounts. 
 
Two people are detained for questioning, but no arrests have been made as of this morning. 
 
Gang detectives also responded since one of the people involved in this shooting has known gang affiliations.
 
TPD says it is not ruling out the possibility of additional suspects, which is why they continue to seek information from the public. 
 
If you have any such information about this shooting, call 911 or 88-crime.
