40-year-old David Moreno Leon was shot to death early in the morning on August 30, 2015 after a foot chase with police on Tucson’s south side near South Morris Boulevard and East Drexel Road. The incident began around 4:30 Sunday morning when police were called to a house in the 5800 block of South Southland Boulevard, said Sgt. Pete Dugan, a department spokesman. Residents reported that a shirtless man was trying to break into a house. Minutes later, police spotted a shirtless man on a bicycle. A police officer tried to stop the man but the man rode off, then ran into the desert area near Morris and Drexel and police followed him. At some point during the foot chase, the man pulled out a hand gun and an officer opened fire, killing him.
