TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson police is looking for at least two men involved in a deadly shooting outside of a hotel in the 2600 block of North Oracle Road on Tuesday, May 2.

The Tucson Police Department has identified the victim as 35-year-old Jorge Ibarra.

TPD spokeswoman Sgt. Kim Bay said Ibarra was outside talking with a group of individuals when the shooting happened.

"At some point during this conversation it turned into a confrontation where the victim was shot," Bay said. "After the shooting the other individuals fled the area. It is believed to be at least two males."

Bay said there is no other description of the suspects.

Nash Elementary was placed on lockdown because of its proximity to the search area but the students were later released on time, Bay said.

Police put up crime tape at the Tiki Motel, 2649 N. Oracle Road, at Oracle and West Kelso Street.

Bay said anyone with information should call 911 or 88-CRIME.
