24-year-old Marco Ormsby was killed during an alleged attempted robbery Wednesday morning at Rancho Del Mar Apartments on Tucson’s southside. Ormsby’s accomplice fled the scene and has not been identified or located.
Ormsby and his unknown accomplice attempted to rob an undisclosed male victim at the complex and shot him in the process, according to a Tucson Police Department media release.
A relative of the victim who lived in a neighboring apartment interrupted the robbery and exchanged gunfire with Ormsby but also struck the victim. Another undisclosed person was struck by the gunfire but does not appear to have been directly involved in the incident.
The victim of the robbery was transported to the hospital with “serious, but non-life-threatening injuries” according to TPD.
The Tucson Police Gang Unit reported to the scene of the incident as some of those involved were known to have gang affiliations, but it could not be determined if the robbery was gang-motivated.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 88-CRIME.
