TUCSON - Three individuals have been taken into custody in connection to an October shooting death of a 25-year-old, Tucson Police Department announced Wednesday.

Beltran Romero with signs of gunshot trauma after responding to a single-vehicle crash near the 5200 block of South Via Noche Buena near Treat Avenue and Camino Laguna Seca. According to police, Romero, who was originally found in the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene.
