Beau Bishop, the 25-year-old Picture Rocks man believed to have shot his parents and then turned the gun on himself, died around 2:40 p.m. Wednesday at University Medical Center, said Deputy Dawn Barkman, a public information officer for the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

The shootings were reported Aug. 22.

That day, at 4:54 p.m., deputies for the Tucson Mountain District of the Pima County Sheriff's Department were dispatched to a shooting in the 11300 block of W. Via Dichosa in Picture Rocks.

When police officers arrived, they found three victims who all were suffering gunshot wounds.

According to a PCSD press release, it appears that Beau Bishop shot both his mother, Lisa Bishop, 47, and father, John Bishop, 65, and then shot himself.

The parents were in stable condition Tuesday. 

The incident is still under investigation.

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.
