Sierra Vista Police Investigating Motel Parking Lot Shooting

The Sierra Vista Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred during a fight in a motel parking lot Saturday night and resulted in the injury of a Sierra Vista man.

SVPD officers responded to the 5100 block of East Highway 90 at about 7:53 p.m. on Saturday for a report of a fight involving multiple individuals in the center of a motel parking lot. Sierra Vista resident Steven Shabi was shot in the upper torso during the fight and fled the scene prior to the officers’ arrival. Shabi arrived at the Canyon Vista Medical Center of his own volition later that same evening and has since been released from the hospital.

SVPD Special Operations Bureau detectives were called out to assist with the investigation and are still following up on multiple leads. Anyone with information relevant to the investigation can contact SVPD Detective Andrew Haldorson at (520) 452-7500.
