Individuals stroll by a gas station and convenience store hours after police surrounded the area near Interstate 10, detaining a person of interest and seizing the guy’s white Chevrolet Tahoe early on Friday, Sept. 11, 2015, raising hopes of a resolution to the rash of highway shootings rattling the metro location in Phoenix.

Arizona Department of Transport Live Traffic Operations operators monitor over 200 freeway cam’s throughout the Phoenix City location, Thursday, Sept. 10, 2015 in Phoenix.

PHOENIX– Police have detained a guy who they believe might have ties to a string of highway shootings that have actually rattled Phoenix over the previous two weeks.

It’s not clear whether the guy detained Friday after he was arrested at a convenience store near Interstate 10 is the only individual of interest. The shooting scenarios have differed, said a spokesperson for the Department of Public Safety. Some shootings involved bullets fired at random automobiles, others involved projectiles– perhaps BBs or pellets– and one was apparently roadway rage, spokesman Bart Graves said.

Phoenix drivers have actually been unnerved considering that the shootings began Aug. 29, mainly along Interstate 10, a significant path through the city. Many motorists have prevented freeways ever since. 8 of the vehicles were struck with bullets and 3 with projectiles that could have been BBs or pellets. One lady’s ear was cut by glass as a bullet shattered her window.

In a news release, the Department of Public Security determined the guy detained on Friday a 19-year-old from a Phoenix suburb. The department would not offer more details connecting him to the shootings besides to say he was being questioned and that he had been booked into prison on an unassociated ownership of cannabis charge.

Graves had stated earlier Friday that private investigators were questioning the guy “about a variety of things” besides the highway shootings, but he declined to reveal exactly what that involved.

Speaking with Fox 10 in Phoenix (KSAZ-TV) from the back of a squad automobile after being nailed, the guy stated officers surrounded him and his mom, weapons drawn, after he bought a pack of cigarettes and a beverage. He said officers had been aggressive with him, intensifying his back injury.

Witnesses stated police officers seemed to be waiting for the man to appear at the corner store and relocated quickly, surrounding his white Chevrolet Tahoe with unmarked vehicles. Graves said the SUV was being analyzed for any evidence that may link it to 11 verified shootings.

“What you saw happen today is an outcome of a lot of troopers on the roadway, a lot of investigators on the road, a lot of undercover and significant automobiles, simply a lot of work by our detectives attempting to solve this case,” Graves stated.

Josie Duarte had actually believed something was odd when she arrived for work at a close-by dental clinic earlier Friday and saw 10 unmarked automobiles in addition to a significant cops truck parked behind her office. She only realized exactly what was up when she saw the same vehicles swarm the parking lot of the Chevron station and convenience store.

Marco Mansilla enjoyed it unfold while getting coffee at an adjacent McDonald’s restaurant. The lot was unexpectedly bristling with law enforcement, when he tried to leave, an officer told him to “get back in the shop. It’s not safe.”

Mansilla said he asked an officer, “Exactly what happened? Is that the sniper guy?” He said the officer decreased to respond to, stating only “enjoy your breakfast.”

On his way back to his window-tinting company across the street, Mansilla stated he saw the man sitting inside a patrol car while four officers monitored the female, who was in handcuffs.

“She remained in shock,” Mansilla stated.

Store clerk Sara Kaur said she was the one who sold the guy cigarettes, at about 9:15 a.m., moments before in between 15 to 20 vehicles swarmed in and officers handcuffed him. She described him as a regular client, and she stated she’s “never had an issue with him.”

Authorities have actually appealed for help through social media, press conference, TV interviews and highway message boards, whose messages changed from “report suspicious activity” to “shooting ideas” to the more ominous “I-10 shooter tip line.”

Many of the thousands of ideas showed to be incorrect leads. In Arizona, windshields are often cracked by loose rocks sent airborne by the tires of other automobiles.

Long time locals still remember a string of random shootings that terrorized Phoenix a years ago. Nearly 30 people were shot then, and 8 eliminated, including a cyclist who was riding down the street and a male who was sleeping at a bus stop. Two men were ultimately captured and founded guilty.
