Midtown homicide being investigated

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A woman's body was found in an apartment complex on the 3000 block of N Geronimo Avenue Sunday morning.

Tucson Police Department PIO Sgt. Pete Dugan said police spoke to neighbors from the area who said they heard shots being fired early in the morning.

"Several neighbors said that they heard gunshots earlier in the morning, approximately 2:30 a.m. in the morning, but no 9-1-1 call was made," Dugan said.

Neighbors said they heard arguing come from the apartment.

"These residents are very close together and it was a neighbor that was checking on her friend and she is the one that noticed the female victim," Dugan said."

One of the most bizarre parts of this case is that a small child was found in the apartment alone, where the woman's body had been found.

Police are taking care of the child, who is okay. It is unclear how long the child was in the how with the woman's body nearby.

Police are not yet saying how the woman died and they do not have anyone in custody in connection with the homicide.

However, they say investigators are following strong leads but aren't releasing a suspect description at this time.
