TUCSON, Ariz. — A suspect has been arrested in a homicide case on the city’s south side, according to Tucson police.
They said 27-year-old Adrian Gilbert Manriquez has been booked into the Pima County Jail on suspicion of second-degree murder and leaving the scene of a fatal collision.
It was unclear Sunday if Manriquez has a lawyer yet.
Police said officers were dispatched to an aggravated assault call Saturday night about a man who was struck by a car outside a convenience store.
They said 41-year-old Jesus Alberto Quivedo was taken to a hospital, where he later died.
Police said it appears Quevedo and Manriquez got into an argument and the victim stepped in front of a car as the driver was trying to leave the scene.
Quevedo was struck, and Manriquez fled the scene before police found him at home, police said.
