Arrest made in graduation party shooting

TUCSON - Tucson Police make an arrest in connection with a graduation party shooting that left one person dead and another wounded.

Tucson Police responded to reports of shots fired at a residence in the 2700 block of West Calle Arandas just before 2 a.m. That's where officers found two victims suffering from gunshot
wounds.

The first victim, a 17-year old male, was transported to a local area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The second victim, identified as 21-year old Miguel Altamirano, died at the scene.

Police believe 30 to 50 guests were at the party when an argument started in the front yard between the suspect and the 21-year old victim. During the argument, police say the suspect pulled out a handgun and fired it toward the 21-year old victim and other people in the area.

The suspect and his associates then left the residence in a vehicle.

During their investigation, detectives obtained an arrest warrant for 18-year old Joseph Goodman for 1st Degree Murder for his involvement in the incident. At about 4:00 p.m., U.S. Marshals took Goodman into custody at a relative's home. He was booked into Pima County Jail for 1 count of First Degree Murder and 1 count of Aggravated Assault.

Detectives still wish to speak with several other individuals that were with Mr. Goodman at the time of the shooting.
