Tucson Police were back on the scene of the shooting on the south side this morning.  Detectives with the investigation were seen searching trash cans, likely looking for evidence in the shooting, before the trash was dumped.

No suspects have been identified.

Authorities are asking anyone who saw or heard anything to call 911 or 88-Crime.
