Would-be robber shot by victim

A man suffered life-threatening wounds when he attempted to rob another man at a midtown car wash and was shot by the victim, Tucson police said.

The incident occurred at a self-service car wash on East 22nd Street near South Beverly Avenue just before 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Police said a 50-year-old man was at the car wash washing his vehicle when he was approached by an 18-year-old man.

The younger man pulled out a gun and attempted to rob the older man, police said.

The older man pulled out his own gun and shot the 18 year old.

The younger man ran away and got into a car that was being driven by another person. A short time later, the 18-year-old man showed up at a hospital with life-threatening wounds, police said.

The 50-year-old man was not injured.

He’s being questioned by police as is the driver of the car who took the wounded man to the hospital.
