ASU Student Shot Near Campus Sunday Dies

Categories: Death Valley
An Arizona State University student was shot last night and has since died from his injuries. Police haven't identified a suspect in the case and are asking the public's help in tracking down the person, or people, responsible.

Tempe police aren't releasing too many details about the shooting, and calls to the department have not been returned.

Here's what we know, though, based on a press release issued by the department this morning.

The student, 21-year-old Zachary Marco, was shot near the intersection of University Drive and Rural Road about 9:30 last night.

He was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police received a tip at the scene of the shooting that two black males may have been involved. The two men left the scene before police got there.

According to police, the motive for the shooting still is under investigation, and investigators are treating the case as a homicide.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Tempe Police Department at 480-350-8311 or call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.

90% of b/w inter-racial crime is black-on white, blaks kill more whites each year than they kill other blaks but all you here about is "we have to stop blak-on-blak murders" when will we wake up and accept that blaks are sociopaths? blak males aged 14-39 are only about 2% of the country's population, but they commit 50% of all the rapes in america. we have a crime problem in america, and it's color is black

2 black males? According to Nativists, only Mexicans commit crimes, and if we could get rid of them, we'd all hold hands and skip down the sidewalks all day long. Description must be wrong...

Poor kid. Glad I got out of Arizona when I did, Tempe used to be safe, as long as you could dodge the drunk bar-hoppers...


The suspect descriptions, which were released shortly before the officers and volunteers began canvassing the neighborhoods, include a black male approximately 25 years old, around 6 feet tall and with a thin build and another black male around 5 feet, 9 inches tall, Carbajal said.
