TUCSON — Four Eloy men were killed in a shooting at a trailer park in Tucson last weekend. The two sets of brothers, who were related, will be laid to rest on Wednesday.

Juan Jose Martinez, 19, was found dead at the scene, according to Tucson Police. His brother, Marco Antonio Martinez, 20, died from his injuries at a Tucson hospital.

Manuel Adolfo Vazquez, 23, and his brother, Luis Antonio Vazquez, 24, were also found dead at the scene. The Vazquezes and Martinezes were cousins.

According to the Tucson Police Department, on Sunday there was a social gathering at a home in the 1600 block of West Ajo Way in Tucson. A disturbance occurred and one of the attendees at the gathering left and returned with other people.

There was a confrontation between the group and the homeowner, which led to gunfire.

When officers arrived they found the two Vazquez brothers and Juan Martinez dead at the scene. Marco Martinez was found injured and sent to a Tucson hospital, where he later died.

The homeowner was unharmed but one of his guests had non-life-threatening injuries.

Tucson Police officials said that no charges will be filed and no suspects are being sought at this time.

According to two obituaries submitted to PinalCentral, Juan enjoyed racing cars and watching his friends race their cars. He loved his fiancée and he adored the puppy the two of them had adopted.

Marco also enjoyed racing cars and watching his friends race. He loved his fiancee and his daughter.

Manuel had been in the Army for four years as a mechanic. He was also involved in a number of sports and was a football player in high school.

Luis enjoyed off-roading, traveling and going to Mexico, hanging out with friends and telling jokes. He especially enjoyed spending time with his son, whom he loved with all of his heart.
