TUCSON (KGUN-TV) - Tucson police are searching for a gunman who opened fire outside an apartment complex.
Police say they responded to a shooting in the 1300 block of Wast St. Mary's around 12:30 am after multiple 911 calls reporting shots fired.
Witnesses at the Viva Burrito Co. Mexican restaurant across the street told 9 On Your Side they heard 7 shots, which is consistent with the yellow markings police placed on the street where they found shell cases.
The victim is a man who is in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said. Witnesses say they think the victim was shot in the thigh.
A TPD sergeant on scene tells KGUN9 they believe the shooting was gang related.
Anyone with information about this shooting is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
