Two Men Arrested In Connection With Midtown Tucson Homicide

Michael Anthony Colmenero | Eric Zamarra

Michael Anthony Colmenero, age 21, and Eric Zamarra, age 43 have been arrested in connection to a homicide that occurred in Midtown Tucson on June 30.

On June 30, 2018, just after 3:00 a.m., Tucson Police officers were dispatched to 3650 East Speedway Boulevard for a report of a shooting. Upon arrival, officers located an unresponsive male, 23-year-old Joseph Anthony Campos, in the parking lot with obvious signs of gunshot trauma.

As detectives continued their investigation, they received tips through 88-CRIME and continued to review evidence from the scene. Detectives were able to determine that on the night of the incident, a large group of males began fighting in the parking lot. During the fight, one male pulled out a handgun and began firing multiple rounds into the air. That individual was identified Colmenero. As Colmenero was firing, a second individual identified as Zamarra fired his gun, which struck and killed the victim. A felony arrest warrant was issued for both suspects.

On July 7, 2018, both suspects turned themselves in to authorities and their warrants were served. Zamarra was charged with Second Degree Murder and Disorderly Conduct with a Deadly Weapon. Colmenero was charged with Possession of a Deadly Weapon by a Prohibited Possessor, Discharging a Firearm within the City Limits and Disorderly Conduct with a Deadly Weapon.

Detectives are still asking anyone with information to call 88-CRIME. You can remain anonymous.

  1. Well back in the day this was The Bunny Ranch, a fresh coat of paint and it’s now the Eden Adult Cabaret. On the bright side it does have two out of five stars on Yelp!
    So if he doesn’t get whacked in jail, Colmenero will plea bargain his charges or have them dismissed outright for pointing the finger at Zamarra for the Second Degree Murder charge.
    Zamarra’s Disorderly Conduct with a Deadly Weapon charge will some how just fade away if he takes his plea deal.
    Looks like everything will work out for everyone except for Joseph A. Campos and his remaining family members.
    Just another senseless act of stupidity for reasons that will never be important.
    Great work by TPD.
