Police seek witnesses in deadly east side shooting

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Police have released names of the victims shot and killed at an east side party over the weekend. They've been identified as 18-year-old Stanford Bell and 20-year-old Javohn Milne.

The shooting happened Friday just before midnight in the 7900 block of E. Senate St. near Pantano and Golf Links.

Police say one man shot and killed Bell and Milne and left a third victim with serious but non-life threatening injuries. The victims were not armed.

Homicide detectives spent all day Monday tracking down leads but say the killer is still on the loose.

Police say there were about 50 people at the party, many of them in their teens, when things quickly got out of control.

"It sounds like they may have had some people showing up that weren't invited," said Tucson Police Sgt. Chris Widmer. "It sounds like the homeowner tried to take control of it and either way by that point, there were too many people there, some type of altercation broke out and shots were fired."

Police have interviewed a number of witnesses but are still looking for more. Anyone with information is urged to call 911 or 88-crime.
