In the early morning of August 16, 2011, The Tucson Police Department received calls reporting a shooting in the area of West Mable Street and North 14th Avenue.  When officers responded to the area, they found Francisco Pereida in the roadway, suffering from apparent gunshot trauma.  Pereida was rushed to a local hospital, where he later died. 

Initial information from witnesses was that a group of people gathered in the roadway at the intersection and several vehicles were seen fleeing from the scene.  One vehicle was described as a white, older model SUV.  The suspects are only described as being several Hispanic males.

Detectives have also determined that the vehicle the victim was driving, a white 2001 Jaguar S-Type (pictured above, top right), was initially missing.  The vehicle has since been located in the 4600 block of North Oracle Road near the Tucson Mall.
