From Fox News: “The man accused in a string of freeway shootings in Phoenix appeared in court Saturday and insisted to a judge that cops have ‘the wrong guy.’ Leslie Allen Merritt, 21, was arraigned on multiple charges, including four counts each of carrying out a drive- by shooting and intentional acts of terrorism. He was ordered held on $1 million cash bail.” That’s a lot of cash for a landscaper and “gun enthusiast”. Department of Public Safety Director Frank “Milstead said the suspect was arrested in the first four shootings, which took place on Aug. 29 and 30. Other charges Merritt faces include criminal endangerment, assault and unlawful discharge of a firearm. Police say bullets from Merritt’s weapon struck a tour bus, SUV and two cars on a stretch of Interstate 10 in Phoenix.” . . .
There were eleven shootings in all. As the report indicated, copycats are always a possibility. The Department of Public Safety indicates that the investigation is ongoing.
