Eviction Notice Turns DEADLY – Multiple People Killed!
(RepublicanPress.org) – During the peak of the coronavirus pandemic, the CDC issued an eviction moratorium to allow tenants more time to pay their rent without fear of losing their homes. That nationwide protection has since ended, opening the door for homeowners and landlords to reclaim their properties for non-payment. However, one attempt to evict an Arizona resident turned into a tragedy last week.
On August 25, the Tucson Police Department was assisting with one such eviction when the apartment dweller, Gavin Lee Stansell, allegedly attacked, shooting three people dead before turning the gun on himself. The suspect reportedly killed Pima County Constable Deborah Martinez-Garibay, the unit manager, himself, and a neighbor identified as Elijah Miranda.

The local constable office released a statement about the incident, sending condolences to the Martinez-Garibay family and others in the force recently killed in the line of duty. Governor Doug Ducey (R-AZ) also sent his “thoughts and prayers” to those suffering from the loss, according to KOLD News 13. He said the tragedy took the life of someone who dedicated theirs to the service of others.
Ever since 9/11, Martinez-Garibay dedicated her life to protecting her fellow man in the police department, Army, and her work with veterans. She previously told the Arizona Daily Star that she wanted to add something worthwhile to the community.
Ducey ordered Arizona state buildings to fly the American flag at half-mast in her honor.
The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
