Police caution tape is placed outside the Yugo apartments on Tyndall Avenue the morning of Sept.18. The area was blocked off following a shooting at the apartments last night.

The area surrounding the Yugo Tucson Campus Apartments has been declared all-clear following a shooting early this morning.

According to the Tucson Police Department, the shooting occurred at the off-campus student apartments at 1101 N Tyndall Ave. This complex was formerly known as the Hub Apartments, the name used in the UAlerts sent out to university faculty, students and others, but is now under the name Yugo Tucson Campus. 

The university sent out a series of four UAlerts early this morning, the first at 2:59 a.m. and the last at 4:03 a.m. The alerts reported that a shooting had taken place at “Hub Apartments” and that police were looking for suspects. At 3:44 a.m., it was reported that a “subject of interest” had been apprehended, and the area was declared all clear.
