On June 29, 2019, just after 5 p.m., Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) troopers responded to reports of shots being fired between two vehicles on northbound Interstate 19 near kilometer 65 (Esperanza Blvd). At that location, an adult female, adult male and child were all found with gunshot wounds and were transported to the hospital with serious injuries. A suspect has been taken into custody and AZDPS detectives are taking the investigative lead in the case.
Both directions of Interstate 19 are closed for the investigation with an unknown ETA to re-open. Traffic is being routed off I-19 at Esperanza. Troopers are being assisted by the Pima County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Border Patrol. Additional information will be released and updated here as it becomes available.
