A shooting involving an Arizona Department of Public Safety worker shut down Arivaca Road overnight.

Arivaca Fire District's fire chief tells KGUN 9 it all began Sunday afternoon when authorities first heard about an incident near mileposts 19 and 20.

Apparently, the Helmet Peak Fire Department was called first, but they were on another call. So, Arivaca firefighters were dispatched to "a shooting."

Investigators shut down Arivaca Road from Sunday afternoon into early Monday morning.
