TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A 20-year-old Tucson emergency medical technician who was critically wounded by a gunman in a shooting rampage last week has died, his employer said Friday.
The death of Jacob Dindinger was announced by American Medical Response in a brief statement. “Our thoughts are with Jacob and his family as we honor his life and his service,” the company said.
Police said several other people were wounded or grazed by gunfire during a string of related incidents on July 18. They included a neighbor who was fatally shot while trying to douse a house fire and the gunman’s girlfriend, who was found dead inside the house after the fire.
Dindinger had been hospitalized in extremely critically condition since being being shot by the gunman while sitting in an ambulance with a co-worker.
