Kansas City Highway Shooting Suspect Arrested

GRANDVIEW, Mo. (AP) — Police have arrested a male suspect in a string of random Kansas City-area highway shootings that have wounded three people.

Kansas City, Mo., police Chief Darryl Forte declined to identify the suspect during a Thursday night news conference near the suspect’s home in Grandview. He says he will discuss the case in further detail at another news conference Friday.

Police are searching the suspect’s single-story home and a green Dodge Neon with Illinois license plates that was behind it has been towed away.

Police said last week that they had connected 12 shootings since early March in which vehicles were targeted on Kansas City-area highways and roads.

Most of the reported shootings were in the southern part of Kansas City, Mo., known as the Grandview Triangle where several highways intersect.
