The Cochise County Sheriff's Office is investigating a homicide that occurred early on Thursday, June 22.  

According to a news release, the CCSO received a call around 1:14 a.m. from a woman who said her son had been shot. She told deputies she was calling from her home in the 4000 block of Sagebrush south of Sierra Vista.  

CCSO deputies arrived on scene a short time later with emergency crews and found a 33-year-old man with an apparent gun shot wound to his upper body. The gunshot victim was transported to Canyon Vista Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead. The man was identified as Jose Arvizu.

According to the release, Wilson told deputies that he had been returning to his truck outside the home when he saw Arvizu outside the gate. He said he feared that he was going to be assaulted, so he retrieved a shotgun from his truck and fired at Arvizu.  

After the interview, CCSO deputies took Wilson into custody. He was booked into the Cochise County Jail on the following charges: murder in the second degree and being a prohibited possessor of firearms. 

The investigation is ongoing.
