Two other people are deceased, but their identities and the circumstances of their deaths remain unclear. 

Fox News reached out to the county administrator’s office for details which referred all questions to the Tucson Police Department, the investigating agency. 

Police said a “homicide investigation” was underway concerning a shooting incident in the 3400 block of E. Lind Rd, and details are still being sorted out.

Several sources told KOLD-TV that the resident being evicted killed the apartment manager and constable before turning the gun on himself. 

Officers at the scene found Martinez’s car parked outside the apartment complex with her purse and other items inside, the Arizona Daily Star reported. 

Police told the outlet that apartment residents were evacuated while the investigation was underway. 

A constable is an elected peace officer of the county and their judicial precinct, according to the Pima County website. Martinez was reportedly elected to her position back in March.
