TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police Homicide Unit detectives are looking for a suspect, and an SUV in connection with the death of a man at a home on Tucson's south side.

Sergeant Chris Widmer tells Tucson News Now, officers responded to a home on the 2200 block of East 19th Street just after 10:30 p.m. Saturday, after a man called 911 saying he had just arrived home, and found his roommate unconscious.

Sergeant Widmer says officers found the victim suffering obvious signs of trauma. Tucson Firefighters pronounced him dead at the scene.

Police have identified the victim as George Martinez, 59.

Detectives say their investigation revealed Martinez was killed sometime during the evening hours. There were no obvious signs of forced entry, but his vehicle, a white 1994 Ford Explorer with an Arizona license plate of ACV8135, was taken.

Police are now asking anyone with information, or who may see the vehicle to call 911 or 88-CRIME immediately.
