Arizona DPS: Multiple Phoenix Freeway Shooters Likely; ‘person of interest’ Identified
Arizona Department of Public Safety Director Frank Milstead said Friday that he believes there is more than one shooter in the recent string of Phoenix-area freeway shootings because of distinct factors involved.
“It does not appear to be the same guy,’’ Milstead told The Arizona Republic. “I think we have three MOs. We have one that looks like road rage, we have the bullet ones, we have the projectile ones.’’
DPS has confirmed 11 shootings dating to Aug. 29. Eight vehicles were struck by bullets and three were struck by unspecified projectiles.
A man being questioned in relation to the recent shootings was arrested Friday and booked into jail on unrelated charges, according to a DPS spokesman.
