Tucson murder investigation; Tatum trial

Posted: Updated:

We now know the name of a man shot and killed in a street fight Friday night. 24-year-old Julius Lat died Monday after spending a couple days in the hospital.

Police say a fight broke out at Park Avenue and Nevada Drive moved into the street when someone pulled a gun.

The suspects are young Hispanic men, one wearing a black raiders jersey the other wearing a light polo shirt carrying a backpack.  If you know anything, call 911 or 88-CRIME.


The U of A student charged with attempted first degree murder after giving birth will stand trial next month. Sarah Tatum was 19-years-old at the time, a sophomore.

She's accused of putting her newborn in a plastic bag. Police found the child gasping for air. Tatum's trial is scheduled for September 7.
