Search for suspect in fatal Tucson shooting

Posted: Updated:

The search is on for a man suspected of fatally shooting another man at a home on Tucson's southeast side.

Police say it happened yesterday inside a home on the 7600 block of East Queen Palm Circle. They say the victim, 36-year-old Johnny Meza, was a guest there.

When the suspect arrived, an argument broke out between the two, which is what led to the shooting. Someone dropped Meza off at St. Joe's hospital, where he died shortly after.

The search for Meza's killer has put some neighbors on high alert. "It's putting me on the guard a lot more. I think the concensus around the neighborhood almost is just keep to yourself," says neighbor Daniel Korchmaros.

Police say the suspect is a 30-year-old black man, 5'10", 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a blue and white shirt, denim shorts, and a baseball cap.
