SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Police say they have arrested a suspect in the killing of a member of Scottsdale's Special Olympics Team and adaptive recreation programs.
The Scottsdale Police Department said 38-year-old John Merryman was arrested at his home in north Phoenix early Friday.
He is a suspect in the killing of 59-year-old Scott Harkness, who was found on the side of a road around 1 a.m. Sunday with a gunshot wound.
He later died at a hospital. Scottsdale detectives found a weapon near the crime scene they say was linked forensically to Harkness's wound and to Merryman, who was being booked into jail.
