Thursday night, just before midnight, Pima County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the 8800 block of South Alice Vail Lane for a report of an unknown problem.
The scene is located about halfway between Ryan field and Three Points in a cluster of homes 1 mile south of the Ajo highway 86.
The person calling 9-1-1 was 56-year-old Brenda Doucette. She reported her brother, 55-year-old Chancy Chamblee, had a gun and broke into the residence through a window. When deputies arrived, they made contact with Mr. Chamblee who was still inside the home. During that initial contact a deputy fired at Mr. Chamblee, fatally wounding him.
Deputies found Ms. Doucette inside the home with signs of trauma. She was pronounced dead on scene.
