FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz. – The Latest on a series of shootings on an Arizona highway (all times local):
Arizona authorities say police found a rifle, body armor and extra ammunition when they arrested a man in a series of highway shootings that left two people wounded.
The state Department of Public Safety says the man was arrested early Wednesday after a police helicopter spotted a stolen car in a ditch along State Route 87 on Phoenix's northeastern outskirts.
Authorities say the man shot at multiple cars on the highway before fleeing and carjacking a vehicle at a gas station. He fired at a state trooper's patrol vehicle during the manhunt.
The trooper wasn't injured, but two motorists were injured in the highway shootings. One person had a minor grazing wound, and another had a leg wound that wasn't life-threatening.
The suspect's identity wasn't released immediately.
