Suspect arrested in fatal shooting of a man at a Mesa motel
MESA, Ariz. (AP) — A suspect has been arrested in the fatal shooting of a man at a motel last Sunday, Mesa police said Tuesday.
They said 27-year-old Stevie Jones was identified as an investigative lead and detained Monday.
Police said Jones allegedly fired his handgun at 28-year-old Michael Gonzalez through the glass of a hotel room before following him and firing several more rounds.
Gonzalez was found dead in the motel’s parking lot.
Jones has been booked into jail on suspicion of first-degree murder and misconduct involving weapons.
He’s being held on a $1 million bond with his next court appearance scheduled for July 6 in Phoenix.
It was unclear Tuesday if Jones has a lawyer yet who can speak on his behalf.
