Pima County officials have disclosed the identity of a man, Jayson Magrum, who was fatally shot by a woman after allegedly attempting to break into her residence in Tucson. The incident occurred around 2 p.m. on Friday near Pyle and Garvey roads, as stated by the Pima County Sheriff’s Department. The woman repeatedly urged Magrum to leave her home, yet he persisted in his efforts to gain entry.

In response to the escalating situation, the woman armed herself with a handgun and fired a warning shot through a window in an attempt to deter Magrum. However, he disregarded the warning and proceeded to reach inside the property, apparently attempting to disarm the woman. It was during this confrontation that the woman shot Magrum, resulting in his collapse and subsequent death in the driveway. Fortunately, the woman escaped unharmed and fully cooperated with the authorities.

The Pima County Sheriff’s Department revealed that Magrum was registered as a sex offender in Utah. Consequently, an ongoing investigation is being conducted to gather further details surrounding the incident.
