Arrest Made in Road-Rage Killing of Tucson Man

Posted:

An arrest has been made in the killing of a 50-year-old Tucson man in a road-rage fight.

Police said Wednesday that several sources led them to identify 24-year-old Andres Fernando Buelna of Tucson as the suspect.

Homicide detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Buelna and found him just before midnight Tuesday. They arrested him at a motel and booked him on one count of first-degree murder.

It's unclear whether Buelna yet has an attorney.

Police believe Buelna and 50-year-old Benny Alvarez Casarez Jr. got into a road-rage fight along a busy Tucson street Monday.

Police say that Casarez pulled into a parking lot, and that Buelna fired several shots at Casarez, hitting him at least once before fleeing.

Casarez died a short time after police found him bleeding in the parking lot.
