Suspect arrested in fatal shooting in Tucson

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Authorities say a suspect is in custody in connection with a shooting in Tucson that left one man dead and two injured.

Tucson police say 18-year-old Dimitri Romero is being held on suspicion of one count of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Police say Romero was arrested Monday for his suspected involvement in the April 4 shooting death of 23-year-old Marcus Johnson.

He was found dead outside a home on Tucson's south side.

Another victim was taken to a hospital and a third shooting victim suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound and left the scene before police arrived.

Police didn't immediately know Tuesday if Romero has a lawyer yet.
