TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Three men were shot overnight and one of them has died in an incident in the 5600 block of East 26th Street, where Tucson Police investigators remain on scene.

The call of multiple shots fired came in shortly after 1 a.m., and when police arrived they found three men who had obviously been shot, according to a TPD media release. They called paramedics, and one of the men was pronounced dead shortly afterward.

The other two were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to TPD.

So far, police have gathered that the three men were in an altercation with each other before the shots were fired, but the investigation is still in its early stages and no other information is available.

Police are asking anyone who knows something about the incident to contact 911 or the 88-CRIME anonymous tip line.

This latest shooting is just blocks away from where a teenager was shot to death in August while, according to police, he and a group of three others were attempting to rob a group of people walking down the street.
