Twenty-five-year-old Tucson Medical Center (TMC) employee Neritza Gonzalez, who was shot after her shift at around 9 p.m. on Aug. 30, 2016 in the hospital’s parking garage, has filed a lawsuit against the hospital in Pima County Superior Court during the last week of November, claiming it was negligent for not keeping the premises reasonably safe.
TMC did not publicly make it known whether Gonzalez was still employed at the hospital or what her position was at the time of the shooting.
According to court documents, Gonzalez was depositing her handbag at the back seat of her car when someone tapped on her shoulder and fired a gun at her when she turned around, sending a bullet that “traveled through her arm and came to rest in her abdomen/hip area on the right side of her body”. Afterward, Gonzalez was brought to a trauma center.
