PHOENIX — Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey ordered all flags at state buildings to be at half-staff Friday due to the lives lost in a shooting in Tucson on Thursday, according to a press release.
Four people were killed in an apartment complex, including Pima County Constable Deborah Martinez.
Martinez was serving an eviction notice when the shooting occurred but details are unknown.
“The loss of Constable Deborah Martinez is felt across our state,” Ducey said in the release. “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.”
Martinez became the constable for Justice Precinct 8 just earlier this year.
