A Clean house in AMERIKKKA

Tucson woman shoots husband, calls cops, then kills herself

A far East Side woman shot her husband several times, called police to tell them what she had done, then turned her revolver on herself Thursday morning, a Tucson police spokesman said.

Officers arriving at the home around 6:26 a.m., found the 54-year-old woman dead in the back yard, her 56-year-old husband laying mortally wounded nearby, said Sgt. Mark Robinson. The man was taken to University Medical Center where he died at 7:16 a.m.

While officers were on their way to the house responding to neighbors’ 911 calls reporting gunshots, the woman called police and told them she just had shot her husband, Robinson said.

Officers arrived two minutes later.

The couple’s relatives have been told of the double shooting and have asked Robinson to withhold the victims’ names until more family members are informed. He said the couple had children and grandchildren in Tucson.

While detectives have established a motive for the shootings, that, too, is being withheld until Thursday afternoon to give family members time to explain it to other relatives.

Numerous family photos adorned walls in the house on East 28th Street near South Harrison Road, Robinson said.

“The house was well kept,” he said. “It was very neat on the inside.”
