TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A shooting suspect released from a local hospital today was arrested in possible connection to a south side incident in early August that left three victims suffering from gunshot wounds.

Julian Martinez, 25, reportedly brandished a small caliber handgun and threatened to shoot two people in the front yard of a residence in the 100 block of W. 32nd Street on August 4.

Police responded to a report of shots fired. They discovered three victims of gunshot wounds, including a 53-year-old man and his 30-year-old son, who were transferred to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The 53-year-old victim allegedly drew his own weapon after the threat and the shooting began. Martinez was reportedly in critical condition but expected to survive.

He was booked into the Pima County Jail shortly after being released from the hospital Tuesday. He is charged with two counts of attempted second degree murder and misconduct involving weapons.

Police said the other injured subjects are still recovering and are considered self-defense victims.
