University Student Shot Dead Waiting for Uber

A University of Arizona student tragically lost her life in a shooting incident that occurred at an off-campus party in Tucson on April 28. The incident, which took place around 1:40 a.m., also resulted in injuries to three other individuals.

The Tucson Police Department responded to several 911 calls reporting a shooting on the 3200 block of E. 5th St. Upon arrival, officers found 20-year-old Erin Jones, a student at the University of Arizona, outside the residence. Jones had been waiting for an Uber when she was shot. She was rushed to Banner University Medical Center, where she was later pronounced dead.

In addition to Jones, three other individuals were found injured at the scene. A woman discovered in a vehicle, a teenager, and an adult male were all transported to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

As of now, the Tucson Police Department has not made any arrests in connection with the shooting. The department is actively investigating the incident, but the motive behind the shooting remains unclear. It is believed that a large gathering had taken place at the residence prior to the shooting, and many potential witnesses had already left the scene by the time authorities arrived.

Erin Jones was a well-known figure at Corona Del Mar High School, where she had been a member of the soccer team. The news of her untimely death has deeply affected her community. Soccer coach Bryan Middleton remembered her as a passionate player and a kind and inclusive teammate.

The investigation into the tragic incident is ongoing. Authorities are urging anyone with information about the shooting to come forward and assist in the investigation.
