Pima County Constable, 3 others dead after attempting to serve eviction notice at Tucson apartment complex

Tucson police say the suspected shooter died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

TUCSON, Ariz. — Four people died, including a Pima County Constable, in a shooting in central Tucson Thursday, police say.

The shooting happened just after 11 a.m. at Lind Commons, an apartment complex in the 3400 block of East Lind Rd, near Fort Lowell Road.

Police identified one of the victims as Constable Deborah Martinez-Garibay, 43, and the manager of the apartment complex. 

Tucson police said the employee and the Constable were attempting to serve an eviction notice to a tenant when shots were fired.

On Friday, Tucson police identified the shooter as 24-year-old Gavin Lee Stansell, who allegedly died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Angela Fox-Heath, 28, has been identified as the manager who attempted to serve the eviction notice with the constable. 

The fourth victim has been identified as 25-year-old Elijah Miranda, who lived in one of the complex's other units. 

Thursday evening, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey ordered flags across the state to be lowered to half-staff on Friday in honor of Constable Martinez and the other innocent lives lost.

“The loss of Constable Deborah Martinez is felt across our state,” said Governor Ducey. “Whether it was serving in the U.S. Army or carrying out her duties as a constable for Pima County, she dedicated her life to helping others and her community. Constable Martinez was a Tucson native who will be remembered for the way she treated others with dignity and respect. Our thoughts and prayers are with her friends and family, as well as those who also lost their lives in today’s tragic events.”
