On May 22, at approximately 9:16 pm, deputies with the Pima County Sheriff’s Department Foothills District initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle in the Walgreens parking lot at River Road and La Canada Drive. 

During the traffic stop two individuals ran from the car towards a second vehicle in the parking lot. The second vehicle attempted to leave the scene and deputies stopped it. 

During that stop, a young man exited the vehicle and ran.   A brief foot chase ensued and in the process the man fell to the ground and deputies heard a gunshot. They drew their weapons and one of the deputies discharged his firearm.

The 24-year-old man was successfully taken into custody, after a brief struggle. The young man was not shot in the incident, but was later transported to Northwest Hospital for precautionary reasons.

None of the deputies involved were injured in the incident. Criminal charges are pending and the investigation continues.

The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
