On Dec. 26, at approximately 3:16 p.m., deputies with the Pima County Sheriff’s Department San Xavier District responded to the 9000 block of South Desert Well Road. They learned that a female 9-1-1 caller reportedly had been shot at that location.

Upon arrival, they found the 61-year-old resident at the incident location had suffered a gunshot wound to her chest. She was airlifted to University of Arizona Medical Center where she remains in critical condition.

Deputies with the Sheriff’s Robbery/Assault Unit responded and learned that neighbors had also heard the shots and came over to the victim’s residence only to find her injured. There was evidence of an exchange of gunfire and it was obvious that multiple shots had been fired. During their initial investigation, detectives were not able to receive a full statement from the victim due to her condition. Investigators did learn, however, that a small gold-colored car was seen leaving the area. It is unclear at this time if the vehicle is related to the shooting.

Anyone with information on this case is urged to call 9-1-1 or 88-CRIME. The investigation continues.

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. 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.
