According to a news release from Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called out to a house in Paulden, Arizona, Wednesday evening around 10 p.m. for a man with a gunshot wound. When deputies arrived at the house, they found the man later identified as Tristin Roque, 22, unresponsive inside a trailer. Deputies tried to revive Tristin for about an hour but he died from his injuries around 11:20 p.m.

YCSO said that multiple witnesses provided conflicting information which made it difficult to determine what led up to the shooting. Deputies eventually arrested Tristin’s father, Donald Roque, according to KTVK.

Formal charges have not yet been finalized. The investigation is ongoing. No further information has been released, YCSO.

Anyone with information is asked to call Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232.
