Tucson Police in Search for Man that Murdered a 6 Year OldBy: Joseph L. Giacalone
Police do not know if a shooting that occurred hours earlier in front of the house had any connection to the murder. In that incident, witnesses state that a man emerged from an SUV and fired at another individual. This incident went previously unreported by witnesses or other neighbors. Unfortunately, the neighborhood and it's residents say shootings are common on the block.
There have been a number of incidents in and around the 2200 block of West Dakota Avenue, including the shooting of Analissa's cousin six months later.
Anyone with information about these shootings are strongly encouraged to call 88-CRIME, The Pima County Sheriff's Department at 520-351-4600 or submit a tip online anonymously
