TPD: Security guard shoots, kills knife-wielding man in midtown Saturday

By: Sam Radwany
TUCSON, Ariz. — Police say a man is dead after he was fatally shot by the security guard of an apartment complex in midtown Tucson over the weekend.

According to the Tucson Police Department, it happened at a building on the 3800 block of Fort Lowell Road, between Dodge and Alvernon.

Officers arrived at the scene just before 9 p.m. There, they came to an apartment where they found 49-year-old David Reed, who had been shot. Officers rendered first aid to the man before Tucson Fire Department responders took over. They took Reed to the hospital, where he later died, Police said.

Police say they later learned an armed security guard hired by the apartment complex was conducting a check of the building when he heard noise inside a vacant apartment. He spoke to two people inside — Reed and a woman. As he was detaining the woman, police say Reed took out a knife and the guard shot him. The security guard also suffered minor injuries.

Monday Trifecta, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes; WW grins. I wasn’t aware the old saw “Never bring a knife to a gunfight” needed an upgrade to “…shotgun fight.” but here we are.

    “WW grins.” And the Gun Bunny is hopping for joy. Nothing like a trifecta DRT AND a piece of classic Man Portable Shoulder fired Artillery FIRST thing of a Monday. Life is good. Hope all of the ‘weeds and weedettes stay safe from the “hard rain’s gonna fall” weather along the coast.

    There may and/or may not be a reproduction of Mr. Sharps work in a .54 caliber Carbine design laying about Firebase Magnolia. Accurate as all hell, fun to play with, and WILL kill someone or something…Graveyard dead! Excellent linky article, btw. A coupla of us more historically minded deplorables made veiled references the other day about “John Brown’s Militia” and rifle boxes marked “Bibles”. Mr Brown actually did have a plan to overthrow the duly elected governments. Our Historical Honor Society was gifted a .52 caliber version that was found hidden inside the wall of a home in Jonesboro GA. Most probably placed there to keep it from being confiscated by the “Bayonet Rule” Reconstruction Government that was in place between about 1865 and 1877. Research on the home showed it had belonged to a…GASP…Confederate Cavalryman that had passed away in the early 1870s. The carbines were also used by the gunners of the Artillery Batteries for a CIWS effort.

    Nebraska City has a real nice Museum on the “John Brown Cave”. Been there, done that, was worth the visit.

    Hack is wondering if he came in through the bathroom window? He found out that happiness is a warm gun.

      Was his name by any chance Bungalow Bill? (smile)

        He was known as the “Turd Burglar”, having left his mark on many a restroom walls at Greyhound bus stations. Known to steal any s__t he could get his hands on. Once arrested for posing as a proctologist at a V A hospital. He’s the one who created the joke…”What’s the difference between an anal thermometer and a rectal thermometer?” The taste!
